The Summer Water Challenge

We protect what we love. We love what we connect with. 

That's why the Canadian Freshwater Alliance is launching the Summer Water Challenge this summer. We want to give a little extra incentive for you and your people to #GetOutToTheWater. 

It's easy to participate! All you have to do is sign up below and start posting pictures of you and your people getting out to the water to social media! It can be an urban stream or a great lake or anything in between—as long as you're on or near the water, it counts! 

There are great prizes from LUSH to win every week, and grand prizes of outdoor gear for a few lucky contestants! 

Just follow these steps: 

1) Sign up below and let us know what social media account you'll be using to post photos (you'll be automatically entered to win a LUSH prize just for signing up!) 

2) #GetOutToTheWater at least once a week between August 4th and September 2nd and post a pic letting us know where you are! Use the hashtags #GetOutToTheWater and #SummerWaterChallenge. 

For every picture you post, you'll gain another entry for LUSH prizes. AND, if you post every week between August 4th and September 2nd, you'll be entered to win the grand prize! 

Pretty good deal, right? An excuse to connect with a lake, river or stream and the chance to win awesome prizes. 

Sign up below and let's get started!
