Fresh Air Challenge

Get a work team together and join the Let’s Go Fresh Air Challenge in October.

Leave the car at home and choose active and sustainable travel: walk, bike, e-bike, bus, e-scooter or ride-share, hold a virtual meeting, or save a journey and work from home!

From October, log each trip on the Fresh Air Challenge website. Your trips will be added to your workplace and you’ll see on the Fresh Air Challenge leaderboard how you’re tracking against other workplaces of similar size.  

Improve your health, well-being and environmental footprint, and get in some friendly workplace competition!

As part of the challenge you will:

  • Compete against other workplaces.
  • Set up an internal competition with teams – you’ll receive a goody bag of prizes to help reward those people who are participating.
  • Foster great team-building.
  • Contribute to your workplace health and well-being goals.

As much as we think exercise is important, the Fresh-Air Challenge is a commuting challenge to help change our behaviours around car use. We want to develop a culture of commuting based on active travel and sustainable options, so unfortunately a bike ride around the mountain or a walk around the block for exercise does not count for this event.   

For more information, contact Let's Go.  Or, you can sign up below to register your workplace and be on your way to a fresher October.

Be sure to check out our awesome prizes below the form!
