City of Victoria Embraces Spirit of the Challenge!

The Commuter Challenge isn’t just about statistics and prizes! Some of our top competitors took it to the next level and really got into the spirit! The City of Victoria set a shining example of teamwork and enthusiasm for the Commuter Challenge! Colleagues, Tim, Bronwyn and Nick decided to paddle and portage to work on Monday, June 4th as a fun alternative and to generate some hype in their workplace!! And it worked! The City of Victoria was the top CO2 avoider in Victoria!

The paddling crew consisted of two canoers and one paddleboarder. They went from the Tillicum bridge, through the Gorge Waterway and into the Upper Harbour in Downtown Victoria. What a way to start a work week! As Tim put it, “It’s amazing that in a busy city, you can unwind on a Monday morning on your way to work, ironically enough.”

We're all looking forward to see how they can top their own performance in 2018! Stay tuned for registration information TBA!
