What is it?

The Energy Cubes Challenge is designed to get you, your family and your childcare center to be physically active from April 29 to May 20, 2024. During these three weeks, any activity that increases your heart rate counts. Running, walking, jumping, swimming… in short, anything that gets your heart pumping! Each week, record your Energy Cubes in your Logbook and give it to your educator at the end of the challenge.

For who?

The challenge is open to all children, from childcare to Grade 6. To collect more Cubes, MOVE WITH one or more members of your immediate family (parents, grandparents, and siblings).


Move as much as possible to collect a maximum of Energy Cubes!

15 minutes of physical activity = 1 Energy Cube


Don’t forget to add the Cubes of your family members who moved with you (children, grandchildren, siblings).
