Manitoba Finishes First in 2012 Commuter Challenge
The 2012 Commuter Challenge, sponsored by Manitoba’s Green Action Centre, has come to a formal conclusion but the momentum carries on. The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce was one of the proud sponsors of this year’s challenge along with a number of our corporate members and friends.
As one of the strategic resolutions that the chambers are working with this year – healthy living and wellness – this is a key priority for us all year round.
Some of the most exciting news was that Winnipeg once again came in FIRST in its population category for the ninth time out of 10.
The community of Wabowden wowed with a first-time win in their population category. Overall, Manitoba topped all provinces for participation levels. Way to go everyone!
You can check out the national results here. Please note that the participation percentages indicated on the national website are based on total registered workplace populations and not based on the population of our city/province for which we took first place.
Congratulations to all participating individuals and workplaces and the chamber encourages everyone to stay active and keep up the green commuting all summer and beyond.
