The Walk & Ride Challenge

The Challenge helps raise awareness among employers, their participating employees, and the Montgomery County community about the benefits of walking.

Employers benefit from a healthier workforce. When employees walk more, often they can:
                 Reduce healthcare costs.
                 Reduce absenteeism.
                 Enhance their productivity thanks to reduced stress.

Employees benefit from walking by:
                 Improving their cardio-vascular health.
                 Improving their mental alertness and managing stress levels.
                 Improving their metabolism and managing their weight.

The community benefits because:
                 Every employee who walks or takes transit to work instead of driving solo removes a vehicle from local traffic.                               Removing vehicles from traffic means fewer emissions and better air quality.
                 Reducing traffic enhances the quality of life for all in Montgomery County.
