In December 2013, the Windsor and West Hants recreation departments partnered with the Department of Health and Wellness – Active Living Branch to offer free programs aimed at youth living in the local area. During the months of January to April, more than 1,438 youth participated in free skating and swimming opportunities. At each program, participating youth had the opportunity to enter their name for a $150 prize.

Keeping with the intent of the program, which was to provide physical activity opportunities, it was decided that the prize money had to be used on something related to physical activity.

Falmouth youths Zach MacMillan and Cameron Baker each won a prize package.

MacMillan purchased hockey equipment with his winnings and Baker purchased a bicycle and helmet.
