Would you like to enjoy the outdoors, enjoy a performance by members of the fabulous UW Marching Band, AND support the Shelter?? Well, here’s your chance! Please join us on May 6th at 10:00 a.m. for the Human Race, a one or three mile walk/run at the Thrivent grounds off Ballard Rd., sponsored by the Volunteer Center of East Central Wisconsin. This is our sixth year participating, and we made over $5000 last year! If we again raise at least $4000, we keep 80% of the money, and the Volunteer Center keeps 20%. And, if we are feeling competitive, the team who makes at least $10,000 and is the top money winner, keeps 90%!!!! So, how can you help? First, we are looking for businesses who might match our donations, so if you own or work for a company that would consider this, let us know. Second, you can form a team of friends, co-workers or folks from your church to walk with us (our team name is Fox Valley Warming Shelter Warming Works!) As with other walk/runs, you get sponsors to pledge money toward your walk. Or, you can get some pledges and walk with us individually on May 6th. If you are willing to do any of the above, we would very much appreciate your help!
Walking with the Shelter team means that you will be "walking a mile" in the shoes of someone who trudges through the streets every day to and from the Shelter to find work or services that will help him or her become self sufficient. Each dollar you raise will help us provide a safe place for people to sleep, meals to send them on their way, and staff to share information about community resources.
