BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- COVID-19 has caused unprecedented disruption to daily life. Starting next Monday, the Get There Challenge, sponsored by Central Oregon’s Commute Options and ODOT, celebrates our creativity, resilience, and doing things smarter and better.
Participants can build skills and stay active by unlocking online remote work and transportation options achievements at GetThereOregon.org to earn badges and points toward prizes—Hydro Flasks, Dutch Bros coffee, $50 Ruffwear gift cards, and more!
Anyone age 18 or older who lives and/or works in Oregon can join the Get There Challenge at any time, Oct. 5-18, by visiting GetThereOregon.org.
“We’re now rethinking how things get done—to do it all smarter and better,” said Stephanie Millar, Get There program manager at the Oregon Department of Transportation. “This year’s Get There Challenge helps Oregonians build skills, stay active, and have some fun, too. Together, we can help keep Oregon moving and make it an even better place to live, work, and play now and in the future.”
Between Oct. 5-18, the Get There Challenge offers 20 different remote work and transportation options achievements participants can unlock online at GetThereOregon.org to earn badges and points toward weekly and grand prize drawings.
Achievements include optimizing your home WiFi, sharpening bike maintenance skills, joining scavenger hunts, and logging remote work/telework days and trips made by bike, foot, transit, carpool, and vanpool.
Weekly prizes include home WiFi extenders, Hydro Flasks, Dutch Bros coffee, gear from Showers Pass, and Fred Meyer, Café Yumm, Oregon E-Bikes, and Ruffwear gift cards. Plus, one grand prize winner will receive a $500 cash card.
The Get There Challenge is sponsored by Comcast Business, RideAmigos, Scoop, Oregon E-Bikes, Ruffwear, Showers Pass, Black Star Bags, and Enterprise. The Challenge is powered by Get There, a trip planning and carpool matching tool. Get There is a program of the Oregon Department of Transportation with local support from Central Oregon’s Commute Options.
