Safe Routes to School
Walk & Bike to School Challenge
Let's take the first step to change community culture and create environments that are more walkable for everyone! Children throughout Marshfield are encouraged to walk or bike to school on Walk to School Day 2021. This international event will be held on Wednesday, October 6. Marshfield Area School District will plan a special event to encourage kids to walk or bike to school everyday.
Typically, a one month walk / bike to school challenge is held every October; however, this challenge will be held in the Spring of 2022. More information will be provided in the upcoming months. Participating students are eligible to win bike helmets, t-shirts, assortment of prizes, and two grand prize winners from each school will receive a new bike. Prizes are provided by generous donations from the Marshfield Clinic Health System, Nasonville Dairy, and others!
