Did you know? According to Coleman Canada nearly two-thirds of Canadians spend fewer than two hours per week outside doing recreational activities. How sad is that? We have such beautiful parks and outdoor spaces all over Canada.
Because of this, the Get Outside Day movement, to excite and encourage Canadians to get outside was launched. July 15th, 2016 is National Get Outside Day. Coleman continues to petition the Canadian government to declare one day this summer National Get Outside Day.
“As Canadians, we’re proud to call this beautiful country home, but it’s unfortunate that so many of us are unable to find the time to get outside and enjoy what Canada has to offer,” said Ezio Sbrizzi, President, Coleman Canada. “As Canada’s leading outdoor company, we needed to do something about it which is why we started the Get Outside campaign. Now more than ever we remain committed to the cause, rallying the Canadian government to allow all of us more time to enjoy our country’s great outdoors. We know that’s a long shot for this year, but our entire team at Coleman will be taking July 15th off to recognize and celebrate Get Outside Day at Bronte Creek Provincial Park in Oakville, Ontario. We encourage all Canadians to get outside that day to support the cause!”
That’s a cause I can get behind! To learn more about the petition and for inspiration and ideas on how you can #GetOutside this summer, visit www.getoutsidecanada.com
