Active Switch Challenge 2018

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2018 Active Switch Challenge!

The campaign saw 39 workplaces and campuses and 8 communities participate
in the 31-day challenge in the month of July.

Together, we helped eliminate 37,803 of vehicle kilometres travelled and
over 4,900 of greenhouse gas emissions from entering our atmosphere!



Congratulations to Sandra McKee from The Corporation of the Municipality of Clarington
for winning the grand prize draw – a $1,000 Marlin Travel Gift Card!



Meet Sandra McKee, Our 2018 Active Switch Challenge Winner


Sandra first came to know about the 2018 Active Switch Challenge through an online posting at her workplace and is now
the grand prize winner of the $1,000 Marlin Travel gift card!

Sandra has always enjoyed walking for exercise and wanted to increase the frequency of her walks to improve her physical fitness.
During the Active Switch Challenge this past July, Sandra would go for walks around home and on hikes when away camping.
She has this advice to offer anyone needing a little extra “push”:

“Try it, you have nothing to lose but a lot to gain! Even two or three 10-minute sessions of walking a day helps!”

Sandra signed up for the Active Switch tool in 2017 and for her there’s no looking back. She continues to
use the tool to log her walking, hiking and yoga activity and is seeing the rewards.

“Just get off the couch and go for a walk. Your body will thank you!”

Congratulations Sandra! Enjoy your $1,000 Marlin Travel gift card and keep up the great work!
