Rogue Commute Challenge

In the spirit of reducing our carbon footprint, of enhancing personal wellness and honoring the interdependent web of life, I'm asking co-workers if they'd be interested in forming “Rogue Commute Challenge” teams.

Local businesses form teams and from May 9 to 15, participants log their walking, biking, carpooling, teleworking and transit trips into the “DriveLessConnect” database.

At the end of the week, trip miles and team participation will be totaled and a Rogue Valley workplace will be declared winner of the 2016 challenge. Individual participants are also eligible for prizes.
