Share this Story

(Sept. 9, 2010)--Through Sept. 30, UTSA will compete with other area businesses and agencies to accumulate the most smart miles per employee in the Walk and Roll Corporate Challenge.

"Smart miles" refers to commuting to and from the workplace or other destinations by carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus, walking or cycling -- just don't drive alone.

Participating in the Walk and Roll Corporate Challenge provides employees with a number of benefits. Alternative commuting saves money, helps de-stress travel time, reduces road and parking lot congestion, and improves health (walking and cycling in particular).

Participants also will receive satisfaction in knowing they are doing something to improve the environment, reduce air pollution and improve the quality of life in our community. An added plus this year is that the NuRide rewards website is being used to track miles in the challenge. Every time you log trips, you accumulate points to redeem for your choice of restaurant and grocery coupons, retail discounts, and tickets to shows and attractions.

Participating is easy. Log smart miles at www.NuRide.com. Just follow the prompts to set up an account, if you haven't already. No special registration for the Challenge is necessary. Any trips you log during September will count toward the Walk and Roll Corporate Challenge.

To find out more about the Walk and Roll Corporate Challenge, e-mail Kristee Phelps, UTSA wellness coordinator, or call 210-458-6102.
