Western had 12 winners for the Smart Trips Fall Prize Campaign! In just two weeks, 1,499 campaign participants saved more than 7,000 gallons of gas, which prevented over 150,000 pounds of carbon emissions.  The walking and bicycling trips added up to more than 1,000 hours of physical activity. Thanks to everyone who participated in the Smart Trips Fall Prize Campaign!  We did something really good for our community.
