For 2021 we've created a self-paced adventure with a variety of fun challenges.

School Fuel's Tour of Novato - Explore Our Town

Explore Novato at your own pace and earn digital badges by visiting Discovery Stops all around town.


The Tour of Novato is an annual Novato-wide celebration of our schools, and a fundraiser to support them.  You can find out more about School Fuel at our foundation website.

This year, we have redesigned the event with public health considerations and COVID-19 in mind. Instead of a one-day gathering, the Tour of Novato this year will be a series of Discovery Stops and challenges that you and your family can complete on your own timeline. As you visit each stop, scan the QR code posted at the location, or check-in from your personal fundraising page.  As you complete the stops, you will earn badges on your page to show off your progress!  Watch this year's video to learn more.



Visit Discovery Stops between April 1, 2021 and May 1, 2021 to complete the weekly challenges.  Fundraising for this year's event will close at the end of the day on May 20.
