The 24th edition of Challenge Day will happen on May 30, with 3,188 cities registered from 14 countries of the American Continent. Of this total, 1.872 are Brazilian municipalities. These cities accepted the challenge of competing for 3 years – from 2018 to 2020 – trusting that together they can add up efforts to increase the number of practitioners of physical activities and sports.
Despite the efforts made by local governments, institutions and individuals committed to reduce inactivity and improve the quality of life, it is necessary to be aware to the political, economic and social factors of the country. In this regard, we stress the truckers ‘ strike, which began on last May 21 and accounts several points of strikes throughout the country.
As a result, the effects of the circumstances are the shortages of fuel, food and other services. Emergency measures are required from municipalities, States and Federation in order to minimize the social impact.
In this scenario, some cities have expressed the incapability to develop Challenge Day actions on schedule. For these municipalities, please be advised that the event can also happen on the following days: 13, 20 or 27 June (Wednesdays).
In cities where participation is confirmed on May 30, we reinforced the importance of recording all activities and send the total of people mobilized to the Executive Secretariat of Challenge Day up to 9 p.m. of June 4.
