The NWT Recreation and Parks Association (NWTRPA) Walk to Tuk has also been selected as one of six finalists in the Play Exchange and will be showcased on a national television show January 9, 2015 and eligible for up to $1 million to launch the challenge nationwide. Voting takes place in January.

“Walk to Tuk is NWT’s biggest physical activity event. Walk to Tuk participants are more active on average than what the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines recommend. This is an exciting opportunity to share this made in the NWT event with the rest of Canada. We are super excited and can’t wait to get started.” said Geoff Ray, Executive Director of the NWTRPA.
