“The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is a physical activity movement, inspiring and motivating Canadians everywhere to move more and sit less, and we are thrilled to have the City of Mississauga support us,” said Elio Antunes, President and CEO of ParticipACTION. “Modern life, with busy schedules, sedentary jobs, hours spent in front of screens and a love affair with convenience, has left little room for physical activity in everyday life. The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is helping Canadians sit less and move more by reminding us that being active is part of who we are.”

The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is the ultimate list of physical activities that define us as Canadian. Visit to sign up, get active and earn chances to win amazing prizes. Fresh Air Fitness runs on Wednesdays, May 24 to August 20, at Mississauga Celebration Square from 7 to 8 p.m. and is sponsored by Pepsi.
