Air a 'Brake'" on May 10
bedecked in lacy dogwoods and dazzling azaleas, what better time
than mid-May to try a more leisurely (and less polluting) means
of getting to work? "Give Air a 'Brake'" Day encourages
Charlottesville-area workers to try something different when going
to work May 10. Sponsored by the American Lung Association, the
program is designed to encourage commuters to use alternate means
to driving alone, thus reducing air pollution and traffic congestion.
Employees who bike, walk, carpool or take the bus to work on May
10 will be eligible for prize drawings. In addition, the department
within each employee communications council with the best record
of commuter participation will be recognized. The most creative
commuter -- the person who gets to work in the most unusual way
-- and all department coordinators of this project will be eligible
for additional prizes and awards.
include Plan 9 gift certificates, running shoes, hiking gear and
cash. The grand prize is round trip airfare for two to New York,
$500 cash and a carriage ride through Central Park.
