Energize Don't Hide 2020 Challenge! 

CMHA Calgary is inviting you to participate in our 2020 summer wellness campaign and virtual Energize Don’t Hide event between June 21, 2020 – September 21, 2020. Consistent activity is important for your physical and mental health. Our event is encouraging Canadians to set a fitness goal and challenge others to match your energy! Begin by registering for $20 to join Energize Don’t Hide and set your fundraising goal to support continued CMHA Calgary programs and services. Then reach your goal by completing 20 minutes of exercise daily to activate your mental and physical health. Don’t forget to challenge and energize your friends, family members and colleagues to match your 2020 Energize Don’t Hide goal.

$20 & 20 minutes of activity = Energize Don’t Hide 2020 Challenge

How does it work?
A virtual event is an online interactive event and gathering, that allows registrants to participate in a way that fits best for each individual’s interests and ambitions. You can cycle, run, stretch, dance, meditate or anything you want! Be active on your own, with your family or connect remotely. 

Set your goal and be active!
Once you register, create your three-month goal and start logging your activity whether it be indoor or outdoor. Check out our Start Energizing page for recommended training platforms and workouts. Don’t worry if you miss a day or two, just keep going! You can do a little bit every day or track your progress once a week.

CMHA Calgary is proud to partner with local fitness instructors to help you get energized and stay energized! When you register for Energize Don’t Hide 2020 Challenge, you will gain access to FREE and discounted virtual classes. Download our monthly Fitness Calendar, Wellness Bingo Card and Class Overview in the 'resources' section of your account to get sign-up information. Read about our instructors and class opportunities on our Start Energizing page!

Challenge yourself, your friends and family
Encourage your family and friends to energize and register with you! You will more likely achieve your goal and build a feeling of connection if you have a group to support and be active with you. Challenge others on social media to match your energy and don't forget to share your photos and videos with us! @CMHACalgary #Energizedonthide #2020challenge #Howienergize

Change your goal anytime
Continue to challenge and take care of yourself. If you reached your goal faster than you expected, you can change your goal anytime!

Support CMHA Calgary
As a result of COVID-19 we worked quickly to move our Peer Support, Recovery College courses, as well as our Family Support and Suicide Bereavement counselling to virtual delivery. Over the past few months, CMHA Calgary staff have been exploring the delivery of online courses as an additional channel of support to the community. The reality of COVID-19 has increased not only the timeline of online delivery, but also our need for different types of technology. Please help us support all Calgarians throughout this pandemic.

We want to sincerely thank our larger community and supporters; we could not provide the services Calgary needs without you during this time.

To stay updated with CMHA Calgary, make sure to follow us on social media and our website (, and share our posts with your network (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn).
