Exciting Ways to Travel Green to School – Strap Up Your Laces!


BUDDY UP CONTEST!

BUDDY UP is a new contest to get students to walk (park and walk), bike, carpool or ride the bus together.

Now through October 31, sign up your group of two or more students from neighboring families to travel to or from school.  Tell us your success story! 

Habits are more  likely to stick when families support each other. There’s safety in numbers and groups are more easily seen by drivers. Best of all, friendships and fun memories are formed! There will be a $50 award for 5 winning groups. Notifications will be sent out in early November.

The first event is coming your way on September 14.  Volunteers will hand out small prizes to students who walk (park and walk more than 10 minutes), bike, carpool or ride the bus to school.

To volunteer at your elementary school, contact Cooper@marinbike.org
