posted on June 5: Register online for today’s Canadian Commuter Challenge


The National Commuter Challenge is in Hamilton today and
McMaster commuters are being encouraged to bicycle, walk,
run, or skate to work.

“Leave your car at home and take up the commuter challenge” is
the message from Green Venture during National Environment
Week, June 3-9.

Why does Green Venture want you to leave
your car at home? The answer is a four-letter word: smog.

The City of Hamilton and several organizations in the region are
participating in the national initiative aimed at keeping our air clean. And McMaster is being asked to do the same.

The challenge provides McMaster faculty, staff and students with a chance to demonstrate their concern for the environment.

While commuters are encouraged to cycle, paddle, carpool, walk or run to work for the duration of Environment Week, the focus for McMaster will be on getting as many people as possible to participate, Wednesday, June 6, the day of the Canadian Commuter Challenge, a larger, country-wide competition held each year on Clean Air Day Canada.
