We are so excited to officially launch our events that will be going on during the Commuter Challenge week of June 5 – 11! As always Clean Air Day will be a big day with a lot of fun activities you can enjoy with us throughout the day, and you will have even more chances to WIN prizes! Check out the details below for more information on specific events.
Register now for the Challenge running from June 5 – 11, 2022, log any active or sustainable trips you take during the week and you will be eligible for awesome prizes!
The Challenge focuses on making changes in small ways by getting active and adapting the way you get around on a day-to-day basis. We are continuing to recognize ALL trips, not just the work trip. Participants can log their kilometers for any active or sustainable trips they take, from walking to the grocery store, taking a walk around the block, trying out new outdoor activities, and so much more!
