Contribute in a concrete and exciting way to improve health and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Massachusetts. We need your help to follow up and register Boston/Cambridge and surrounding area organizations for the 2017 Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge !
ABOUT THE WALK/RIDE DAY CORPORATE CHALLENGE
The Challenge invites employers 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! Organizations compete with one another to see who can get the most-green and or healthy commutes on the last Friday of each month.
The Challenge encourages people who may never have experimented with shifting their commuting mode in a greener direction to make a change -- one day per month is a much less daunting goal for "beginner" green commuters. During the 2013 Challenge, 19% of individuals participating made at least one 'green switch' in their commutes. Once they try it out, some continue on to make the greener option a more permanent part of their commuting strategies.
Your job will be to follow up with area companies to sign up for the Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge. We will be provide talking points and logistical support!
