ABOVE AND BEYOND Fun run / walk / roll

  • McKee Farms Park 2930 Chapel Valley Road Fitchburg, WI, 53711 United States (map)

NEW IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SATURDAY: The weather forecast for tomorrow isn't great - 85% chance of rain, around 40 degrees.  Rain turning into snow.  To beat the snow, and maybe catch a break in the rain, I've decided to change the event time slightly.

9:00am volunteers arrive

10:00am pre-registered participants arrive - we will have a bag ready for each family that includes your event shirt(s) and participation medal(s). We will be in the back of the pavilion on the covered patio. Bring cash $5.00/6 raffle tickets.

10:00am day-of registrations -- rainy day price break $20.00 cash/check (no participation medal; shirt/size not guaranteed)

10:15am - 10:30am we will hope for a break in the rain to set out and complete the walk around the park. Bring umbrellas, rain ponchos, etc...
Upon returning we will have refreshments (water and a snack) and we will draw winners for the raffle items.

SBWIS staff will be present until 11am. We wish to be driving back to Milwaukee before the snow flies.  If the weather impacts your participation, please stop by between 10am and 10:30am to pick up your bag (shirt and medal). We will not mail these items to you after the event. They must be picked up at the park. Park address: 2930 Chapel Valley Road

Please email Kathy with any questions  Thank you for your understanding and flexibility! We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

Join us for our inaugural run / walk / wheel in the Madison area supporting SBWIS families across Wisconsin! For more information and to register visit:

 Spina Bifida Wisconsin is the only state-wide nonprofit organization serving families impacted by this condition. We recognize the unique challenges that people with spina bifida have to face - multiple surgeries, mobility issues, shunts, latex sensitivity, limited options for care, school and work accommodations to name just a few. When our families encounter obstacles, they consistently go ABOVE AND BEYOND to over-come their difficult situation. This event celebrates the accomplishments of our members and raises money for our programs and services that extend across Wisconsin. We hope you can join us, meet some of our members that have gone ABOVE AND BEYOND, support our mission, and have a great time.
