About Live Right Now
This year Live Right Now is going full-time, with exciting new goals every season, to help us all stay motivated and continue to make small, manageable changes in our lives!
To kick things off, we want to eat together more often and share 100,000 meals by the end of April! What makes this goal even more inspiring is that every time you register your meals at LiveRightNow.ca you will help put food on the table of a family in need! Through your participation and the generous support of our sponsors President's Choice and Dairy Farmers of Canada, we will work with Food Banks Canada to feed up to 100,000 families in need.
Meantime - talk to us! Does eating together with the people you love sound like a resolution you could get into? Tell us on our Facebook page!
Where/when - you might ask - did this all start?
CBC launched Live Right Now on January 1, 2011 to inspire Canadians to join together and change the health of this country.
The initiative is built around the idea that we can have a big impact by making small changes to the way we move and how we eat.
In six months thousands of Canadians and dozens of communities came together to take more than 92,000 challenges, share their success stories and support each other to Live Right Now. Collectively we pledged to lose more than 1.6 million pounds!
In 2012 we went on a search for the community with the most enthusiasm to make better choices and live healthier lives. The people of Edmundston, New Brunswick earned their city the honour of being named the 2012 Live Right Now Capital of Canada and the grand prize of a $100,000 natural playground!
