There is no denying that the past few weeks, months, and years have been challenging for people in Ottawa and across the world, especially for vulnerable children and youth. With the sunny new season of Spring upon us, BGC Ottawa is launching a fun social media challenge, the #ShineChallenge☀️ (inspired by our hugely successful #MoveWithUsChallenge), to give an opportunity to people in Ottawa to shine bright in support of BGC Ottawa.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Starting Monday, April 4th, participate in the #ShineChallenge☀️, and support BGC Ottawa.
1. Film a video sharing that you are participating in the #ShineChallenge☀️ and showcase something that makes you shine – maybe it’s sports, dance, art, family time, work – anything that makes you shine!
2. Post the video on Instagram or Twitter , include the hashtag #ShineChallenge☀️, tag @bgcottawa, and at least three friends you want to challenge!

Jonelle Istead, BGC Ottawa’s Chief Advancement Officer said: “We are beyond excited to be creating this wonderful opportunity for people across Ottawa to spread positivity and share what makes them shine, while also having a direct impact on the lives of thousands of children and youth from their community.”
In addition to making an impact in an organization at the heart of your city, your #ShineChallenge☀️ video will surely inspire young people from your neighbourhoods who are most likely going through the most difficult time of their lives.
The funds raised with the #ShineChallenge☀️ allow us to keep BGC Ottawa’s life-changing programs, safer spaces, community-based services FREE!
