About Walk With Me Milwaukee 2014
Short on Distance, but Big on Heart... Join us on Friday, June 13th inside Polish Fest as we take great "strides" in helping individuals with disabilities at our 8th Annual Walk With Me. Your support of this signature walk event helps us provide children and adults with autism and other disabilities the opportunities to live, learn, work and play in our communities.
Enjoy Polish Fest. Families, friends and co-workers can enjoy free admission to Polish Fest and an evening filled with fun just by registering for the walk and meeting your fundraising goal! Children age 15 and under are also free. Don't get caught in construction, check out these directions!
Live Entertainment and Stars. Registration begins at 5:00 p.m. at the main gate of the festival. Enjoy pre-walk entertainment, featuring The All-Star SUPERband at the Johnson Controls stage. Be sure to take the opportunity to stroll down Ambassador Row and meet our 2014 Honorary Ambassadors and stars of the walk.
The Walk. Take in the beautiful scenery of Lake Michigan's lakefront and Lakeshore State Park during the 1-mile family fun walk. Walk begins at 6:30. Enjoy Polish Fest, more fun and post-walk entertainment after the walk back at the Johnson Controls stage. Together We are Making a Difference. Money raised through this event will be used to provide direct services for individuals with disabilities. Your support will go far beyond just one evening of walking. Lace up those walking shoes today!
Top Fundraising Prizes. The top 2 fundraising teams will be rewarded with either a 4-course gourmet meal prepared by a Whole Foods Market chef for 15 hungry people OR a 2-hour party tour for 16 riders aboard the Milwaukee Pedal Tavern.
