While we are working closely with Mass in Motion communities to make the healthy choice the easy choice and encouraging individuals to eat better and move more, we’re also issuing a challenge to our own staff.  Beginning April 26th, DPH will join the 2013  Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge issued by the Green Streets Initiative.

The Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge is a competition between Massachusetts workplaces to see who can get the most staff to commute to work without using their car on the last Friday of each month between April and October. It’s good for the environment, and for our health.  Last year, DPH placed 2nd in the competition, but this time, we plan to take first place!

Think you can do better than us?  Join the challenge!  Visit www.gogreenstreets.org to register today.
