The recent Trek to UBC: Commuter Challenge Day saw more than 800 participants finding alternative means of getting to campus. Forty groups of staff, faculty and students took the challenge with the group from the Hennings Building taking first place in the participation challenge for large groups and the Library's Information Services group winning for small groups of fewer than 50 people. Prizes included gift certificates from UBC Food Services and UBC Bookstore and UBC TREK program items.
The next commuter challenge takes place June 7.
