The Deets

What it is: Smart Commute is a community-wide celebration encouraging everyone to try a healthier, greener, and more efficient way to get to their destination. Make your work day more active by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, taking walk breaks, or joining us for various events this summer.  

When it is: Participants have opportunities to receive punches throughout the summer until Step by Step Family Wellness Day on September 17, 2016.

How it works: Each participant will receive a "punch card" and can receive "punches" (aka stickers)  at designated events attended below. Completed punch cards can be redeemed for prizes. Participants can complete more than one card between May 14 and September 17 to receive multiple prizes. Completed cards can be dropped off or mailed to: 

Step by Step
One Jackson Square, Floor 9
Jackson, MI 49202

To drop off in person, turn left out of the elevator on floor 9. Cards must be dropped off between 8-5 Monday- Thursday.
