Walkride day

 

 

 Kicking off tomorrow and continuing through September 28, The Green Streets Initiative is redefining the phrase “healthy competition” in the workplace.

The 2012 Walk/Ride Corporate Challenge calls on Boston and Cambridge area organizations to abandon their cars the last Friday of every month in exchange for a healthier and more eco-friendly commute to work. Employees of registered organizations can then log their activities online every Friday for monthly gift card prizes as well as points towards winning the competition overall (ending with a special celebration)!

Commute alternatives can include walking, bicycling, using public transit, or carpooling. However, the Walk/Ride Challenge urges individuals push themselves. If you already take the T, get off a stop early and walk the rest of the way to work.

If you missed registration for online participation, that’s okay! Create your own office challenge. Remember, Walk/Ride Day is just once a month, for seven months! Send us your updates on what your office is doing, and how you change your commute! We'll post photos you send on our blog and Facebook page.

For more information on the Green Streets Initiative and this year’s Walk/Ride Corporate Challenge, visit www.gogreenstreets.org.
