MAZDA AND PARTICIPACTION CHALLENGE YOU TO SPEND MORE TIME IN NATURE
The benefits of spending time in nature are well documented. It enhances our state of being, our humanity – even as life gets more hectic and disconnected from our natural environment. That’s why Mazda has partnered with ParticipACTION to encourage all of us to spend time in nature. For the month of August, we challenge everyone to spend as many 50-minute sessions in nature as possible every week – as a transformative experience.
To take part in the challenge, download the ParticipACTION app which will track your activity time during August, and automatically enter you in weekly prize draws.

PRIZES & DETAILS
As if a natural wellness boost isn’t enough, ParticipACTION is giving you a chance to win weekly rewards of gift cards from outdoor gear and outfitters, Sporting Life and Atmosphere. There are also two $5,000 grand prize gift cards from MEC to be won. Every 50 active minutes in nature you track on the ParticiPACTION app equals one contest entry.
When does Mazda’s CX-50 Minute Challenge take place?
The challenge takes place from August 1 to 31, 2022. You can join the challenge anytime throughout those dates.
Where can I download the app?
Can anyone join the challenge?
Anyone can participate in the challenge (though you must be at least 17 years old to enter the contest1).
I have downloaded the app early, but I can’t join the CX-50 Minute Challenge.
You can join the Challenge from July 18th so you’re ready to go when the app starts tracking your active minutes in nature on August 1st, when the Challenge begins.
How can I track my time in Nature?
This app only tracks active minutes. It is up to you to make sure you do your part in nature – to feel all the benefits it provides. Your active minutes will be recorded automatically with a fitness tracker or by self-reporting within the app.
What trackable devices work?
The ParticipACTION app connects to Garmin, Fitbit, and Apple Watch devices to allow for your active nature time to be automatically logged and counted towards your goal. You can also easily sync your account to your Google Fit or Apple Health apps, too.
What are the prizes? When will they be awarded?
Prizes will be gift cards of increasing value from outdoor gear and outfitting brands such as Sporting Life and Atmosphere, with two grand prizes worth $5,000 from MEC. All prizes will be awarded by ParticipACTION at the end of the challenge.
Who is eligible to win prizes?
To win prizes, you must be a Canadian resident, at least 17 years of age, and have answered a skill-testing question correctly. In addition, your user profile must be complete with your first name, age and postal code. In the event that a winner is below the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence, the potential winner’s parent or legal guardian will need to approve the release of the winner’s prize.
If I join after August 1st, will I still be eligible to win prizes?
Yes, each recorded 50 active minutes spent in nature enters you into that week’s prize draw, and grand prize draw, regardless of when you join.
Is there a limit to how many prizes I can win?
Great news! As long as you’re tracking towards reaching your 50-minute sessions in nature each week, there’s a chance your name may be drawn in the overall grand prize draw and each weekly prize draw. However, you are only eligible for winning once per prize draw (5 draws in total).
I still have questions about the Mazda CX-50 Minute Challenge. Who can I contact with unresolved questions?
