StatsCanada numbers from 2015 have Saskatchewan with the highest obesity rates in the province.

But the Go Out and Play Challenge has begun, and the Town of Shaunavon hopes for a good showing so they can get a new irrigation system for the baseball park.

"The Town of Shaunavon and the Wellness and Leisure Committee registered for this Go Out and Play Challenge and we were accepted," said Dana Dale, director of Wellness and Leisure for the Town. "It's run through Saskatchewan Blue Cross and Saskatchewan InMotion, and basically they're just challenging communities across the province to go out and play, get physically active."

The challenge runs until March 10 for a $10,000 grand prize.
