Commit to SmartCommute for Chance to Win

By NIEHS
August 2005

Could you use a week-long vacation somewhere - anywhere - in the continental United States? Don't miss the opportunity to register for this and other prizes offered by SmartCommute.

The SmartCommute Challenge runs Aug. 14-Sept. 30, and is open to anyone working in Wake, Durham or Orange counties. The organization's purpose is to promote alternative modes of transportation instead of each person driving his or her own car to work each day.

In exchange for promising to try carpooling, vanpooling, biking, walking, telecommuting or riding the bus, you can win a pair of roundtrip tickets and a week's hotel stay in the continental U.S. Other prizes include an iPod mini, a bike, and a laptop.

Pledging also makes you eligible to receive a free green wristband with the slogan "One Less Car Today." The wristband not only announces your support for cleaner air and reduced traffic congestion, it also entitles you to discounts and promotions at participating merchants throughout the Triangle.

To register or to see a list of participating merchants, go to www.smartcommute.org.
