The second annual Walk and Ride event was held this month for employees who work at businesses in one of the County’s five Transportation Management Districts (TMD). Employees were challenged to replace part of their daily commute and lost hours stuck in traffic with a healthy walk connecting them to transit and/or work. The TMDs are in Bethesda, Friendship Heights, North Bethesda, Greater Shady Grove and Silver Spring.
Three to five member teams receive pedometers to track the number of steps taken and results are logged online. Prizes are awarded weekly, with grand prizes presented to winning teams at the end of the challenge.
