The Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge is kicking off its third annual competition among Boston and Cambridge area employers to determine which organization is the green commuting champion! See last year's winners here.
The Challenge takes place once a month, kicked off on April 25 and runs through October 31, 2014. It invites organizations to encourage their staff to commute car-free on the last Friday of every month, aka Walk/Ride Days. Walking, bicycling or using mass transit - even carpooling - all count as "green", and we welcome car commuters to check in and be eligible for rewards as well. Fundamendally, Walk/Ride Day is a recurring opportunity to think about – and often to explore – more environmentally friendly and healthly commuting options.
Once their company has registered, participation by individuals is free and simply involves "checking in" online on Walk/Ride Day. If it's a new commuting habit for them, great. If it's typical, that's fantastic, too. This Challenge is designed to celebrate both! There will be monthly and overall winners, who will be listed on an online leader board and in local media.
