June 21st: The Longest Day … of Play!

One thing I love about the weather getting warmer is all the great ways to get a sweat on outdoors.

Sweating For Social Good

If you read the Toronto Star this morning, you likely saw a couple of fabulous fitness events happening this month which support two great causes – now who doesn’t love sweating for some social good!

The first, the Toronto Fitness Challenge,  is a one day, action packed event encouraging it’s participants to yoga, Zumba, and Harlem Shake for Sick Kids Foundation.

The second event,  OM T.O. is a full day of continuous outdoor yoga classes led by many instructors from around Toronto with proceeds going to Colon Cancer Canada.

OM T.O. takes place on June 21st which  is already jam packed with fun events in the city as it is the Summer Solstice (aka the one day a year with the most hours of daylight).

Longest Day of Play

June 21st also brings ParticipACTION’s Longest Day of Play. The idea behind this event is to simply get up and play! Move, have fun, bring back those memories from when you were a kid! If you’re a family looking for ways to move together ParticipACTION has a ton of activities on their website. But there’s no need to get fancy! Go for a walk, put on those helmets and hit the bike path, or just find a tree and play!


To take you from day to night on June 21st, I’ll be leading my first Oakley Active event in partnership with Barreworks. You’ll find me at 6pm and 7:30pm leading a SpinRave – think glow sticks, black lights, and lots of fun. 6pm is an event open to the public and you can register here. 7:30 is for the Oakley Training Club (ladies only) use promo code Oakley to ride at 7:30 for free! – Register here. Hope to see you there!

So whether you are yogaing for a cause, riding under the black light, or simply getting your play on, on June 21st  get out there and enjoy the extra bit of day!

How will you spend the longest day? Let me know in the comments!
