#ygkChallenge: Take the Commuter Challenge

ygkchallenge, read, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Take the Commuter Challenge. Walk, cycle, take the bus, carpool, or work from home. Commuter Challenge (May 31 – June 6) is an event that encourages participants to leave their cars behind and find another way to get to and from work. Everyone who registers at www.commuterchallenge.ca and who logs at least one commute during that week will be automatically entered to win a prize, including a bike valued at $600! For three years in a row, Kingston has placed first in its category in the national Commuter Challenge. We need all active commuters, both current and new, to help defend our title again this year. More information about Commuter Challenge events can be found at this KFL&A Public Health.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
