Joining the list of cancelled events due to COVID-19 is the United Way’s annual Bus Pull.
The Bus Pull is a fundraiser where teams of eight pull a B.C. Transit bus in a round-robin style tournament.
United Way Southern Interior B.C. is launching the ‘8-Minute Challenge’ in place of the large summer gathering.
The 8-Minute Challenge will still require eight group members but this time, groups can pick whatever activity they want to do for eight minutes. United Way said groups can do a fitness activity, games, chores, an act of kindness or whatever they choose.
According to United Way, teams will be assessed on “creativity, laugh factor, degree of difficulty, potential for community impact”, as well as money raised.
The 8-Minute Challenge is scheduled for June 20 at 10:00 a.m.
