Active Switch challenges you to leave your car at home and choose an active transportation option to get to and from work during the week of October 19th -25th.
During the Active Switch Challenge, log your ‘active transportation’ trips (walking, running, cycling, rollerblading, skateboarding, or other healthy, active ways of getting around) on the Active Switch Tool for a chance to win a pair of plane tickets to Europe, courtesy of Transat Holidays. The winner can select from any of Transat’s European destinations, via Air Transat which include: Czech Republic / England / France / Greece / Ireland / Italy / The Netherlands / Portugal / Scotland / Spain.
You will also be able to track your progress, earn medals and see calories burned and costs saved. Challenge yourself to try an active route to work!
If all the way to work isn’t possible, consider biking or walking for a leg of your journey – it could be faster than you expect. Instead of the bus, try getting active on the way to the transit station or consider a bike ride to meetup with your carpool. For some, it could mean avoiding that double fare, getting off the Go Train and picking up a Bikeshare to work. There are plenty of options, one is right for you.
