Team Best Buddies Raises $4,000 at the 2nd Annual Milwaukee Running Festival
On November 6, Best Buddies Wisconsin participated as Team Best Buddies in the 2nd Annual Milwaukee Running Festival as a charity. Team Best Buddies is an endurance event program that enables athletes of all abilities to dedicate their training and participation in endurance events to the life-changing movement of inclusion for individuals with intellectual and development disabilities.
The Milwaukee Running Festival was a great fit for our group as it hosts running events for all ages and abilities, including a 5K Race, Half Marathon, and Marathon. Runners registered for their race of choice through the Festival and committed to raising funds for Best Buddies Wisconsin.
In return for their fundraising support, Team Best Buddies runners received some special incentives!

- Access to training plans and fitness tips from fitness partner, BodyRenovation
- Milwaukee Running Festival VIP knit or ball cap
- VIP Parking and tent access
- Exclusive Team Best Buddies race shirt
