The Town of Strathmore is encouraging residents to get outside and stay active.

The event is meant to see which community in Canada can become the most lively.

Lisa Montgomery, manager of the Strathmore Motor Products Sports Centre, says even sports teams can sign up for the program.

"They can track all of their practices and games and all they need to do is track the date and how many people attended."

Whichever community has the highest numbers this year wins a total of $100,000.

According to Montgomery, last year the town was close to advancing.

"We did place very high last year but weren't in the top five to move over to finals."

The event will run until the end of June.
