(Sept. 29, 2015) October, or should we say Go-Tober, is just a few days away. The University of Denver is one of just 25 organizations competing in the Go-Tober challenge and we want you to join our team. You’ll have the opportunity to win prizes throughout the month! Here’s how it works:

The challenge

Get as many of our employees (like you!) as possible to try fun, smart ways to commute at least four times in October. You can walk, bike, carpool, vanpool or take light rail or bus. Mix it up and see what works for you.

How to win

Track your trips online, and the organization with the highest score at the end of the month wins prizes, glory and the title of “Most Go-Getters.” The organization with the highest score each week is also rewarded with surprise prizes – so you can earn fun perks, too. We know you’re a Go-Getter and our team needs you!

Ready. Set. Go.
