Days Inns – Canada has launched a partnership with ParticipACTION, a national non-profit organization whose mission is to help Canadians sit less and move more.
Originally established in 1971, ParticipACTION works with its partners to make physical activity a vital part of everyday life.
“At Days Inns – Canada, we’re committed to making it easier for guests to incorporate healthy living practices while on the road,” said Irwin Prince, president & COO, Realstar Hospitality. “With life’s busy schedules, it can be challenging to incorporate physical activity in our daily routine. Together with our hotels, we will provide our guests with helpful ways to be more active wherever you are.”
The partnership will see Days Inn locations across the country communicate the value of physical activity through onsite collateral, events and contesting. Days Inns – Canada will also support the distribution of The ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada. As an official hotel partner, Days Inn locations will have this summer’s 2018 Report Card and other practical tools available to hotel guests.
“ParticipACTION is excited to welcome Days Inns in Canada as official hotel partners of our organization. Promoting the value of physical activity while providing hotel guests with opportunities to be active will go a long way towards making Canada a more active place” says Elio Antunes, president and CEO of ParticipACTION.
