Thank you to everyone who made the Human Race 2013 a success.
What a great addition to have the University of Wisconsin Marching Band 5th Quarter. Attendees and walkers could hear them throughout the Thrivent Financial grounds. Although we had some muddy feet we were fortunate that the sun came out and warmed us up a bit. There were 32 teams/organizations who benefited from the Human Race. What was particularly great about this year's walk is that there were so many clubs, churches and companies walking to support the teams. That is just part of what makes the Fox Cities a great place to live.
Thank you to our local businesses and supporters for sponsoring the Human Race: Festival Foods, Gene Arnold, Kimberly Clark Corporation, Katupult, Silton Seifert, Menasha Corporation, Thrivent Financial, and Appleton. Our media sponsors really helped get the word out and added to the hoopla and excitement. Thank you to KZ104.3 Doug and Mary, WBAY TV Cami Rapson, and the Post Crescent
The amount raised so far is greater than last year!! Teams still have until May 20, 2013 to turn in pledges to the Volunteer Center. This year the on-line pledging was popular. The on-line pledging greatly exceeded previous years pledges. Great job everyone!
