The "Run for the Parks" is branching out in 2013!
This year we'll be raising money and awareness for Humboldt Park and Washington Park!

Similar to our established Humboldt run, this too is a cross-country fun run that weaves through the park. It begins and ends in front of the band shell stage with hundreds of people cheering you on.
All registrants will receive a commemorative T-shirt and a goodie bag with swag from our sponsors. Stay after the event to partake of our special VIP area where you can sample wine and beer as well as well as pizza, fruit and snacks while listening to the music of Kt's Universal Love Band.
Washington Park "Run for the Parks" info:
The Park People of Milwaukee County are proud to announce the second in our “Run for the Parks” series. This 5k cross country fun run/walk will be held on July 31st, 2013 at 6:30pm starting at the Washington Park Band Shell.
The Run for the Parks cross country 5K is a fun run/walk that weaves through the park, over hill and dale. It begins and ends in front of the band shell stage with hundreds of people cheering on the runners.
The run is designed as a benefit event to help raise awareness and funding to support The Park People of Milwaukee County in their nonprofit mission but also to raise funds for the parks where the events are held. Ultimately, the Park People will work with the groups representing Washington Park to determine how the funds raised for the park will be used to benefit the park.
All registrants will receive a commemorative T-shirt and goodie bag with swag from our sponsors. Participants are encouraged to stay after the event to partake of a special VIP area where they can sample wine and beer as well as pizza, fruit and snacks, all while listening to the music of KT's Universal Love Band at the Wednesdays at the Shell Concert series.
