Fuss & O'Neill, an engineering consulting firm with offices in CT, MA, NY, NC and SC, is offering their employess a unique opportunity this summer - get in shape, save on gas, and help benefit the ECG!
Beginning April 1st, employees from any Fuss & O'Neill office can start biking to work as frequently (or infrequently) as they like. In addition to getting in shape, avoiding traffic, saving on gas, and all the other benefits associated with leaving the car at home, Fuss & O'Neill will donate $0.10 to the East Coast Greenway Alliance for each mile biked. At the end of the summer, the participants who racked up the most miles will win prizes, which the Employee Committee insures will be very cool! (The ECGA will offer some goodies as well!)
While "bike to work" programs are becoming more common, this is the first time a company has focused their program on the East Coast Greenway. Fuss & O'Neill's Employee Committee, the originators of the idea, say they have gotten an "overwhelming response from folks who are jazzed about biking to work."
If you're interested in developing a similar program for your company, here are some of the Fuss & O'Neill's FAQs that may be helpful to you:
Fuss & O'Neill has been a strong supporter of the ECG in many ways over the years - they have created ECG maps, designed several miles of ECG, and have been a long-time supporter of our CT effort, both financially and with staff time. Currently they are ECGA Chamber of Commerce members and stewards of the Charter Oak Greenway, and ECG segment.
The ECGA thanks Fuss & O'Neill for including us in the Bike-to-Work Challenge, and we wish all the participants the best of luck!
