WIPEOUT For United Way

Inflatable bounce-houses have been one of the most popular sources of child entertainment for years and years. Well, this is your chance to relive some of your best childhood memories. On October 12, 2012, Wipeout for United Way will be held at the Marshfield Middle School Track starting at 3:30 pm.

The event invites all friendly, competitive community members, businesses and organizations to engage in head-to-head competition and race in the dual-lane, ninety-nine foot, inflatable obstacle course. Some local businesses have already organized teams and issued public challenges to their competition. While some prefer to challenge outside competition or to challenge one another within their own organization, Marshfield Area United Way encourages anyone interested in having some care-free, light-hearted fun to round-up a team and run the course! Marshfield Area United Way will schedule race times for anyone wishing to join in the fun and participate.

Four-person teams will be facing-off throughout the afternoon until the championship round is determined. The fastest times will make it to the final round and each team will have an opportunity for a “fifth” man that has the potential to be a real game-changer. For every additional one-hundred dollars teams raise for United Way, five seconds will be marked off their total race time making for a very interesting competition.

Marshfield Area United Way is calling out bankers, realtors, doctors, teachers, dentists, downtown businesses, United Way partner programs, car dealerships, restaurants, bars, convenience stores, insurance agents, student councils/organizations or clubs, the University, Mid State Technical College, the Fire Department, the Police Department, and the entire community to accept the challenge and prove you have what it takes to Wipeout the rest of the competition.

The entry fee is one-hundred dollars per team. Anyone under the age of eighteen wishing to compete must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, please call 715-384-9992 or visit To sign your team up, call United Way at the number above or email with your team name, contact person and email as well as a desired race time between 3:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. The deadline to register your team is October 5, 2012.

Marshfield Area United Way would like to thank Security Health Plan for sponsoring this new, fun community event. All proceeds will be put toward the 2012 United Way Campaign and help support thirty human service programs in 2013.
