We’re Thankful For You…and for WRW 2016!

As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, we’d like to express our gratitude towards everyone who has supported Walk Run Wag: participants, sponsors, the people who showed up just to cheer us on and, of course, our amazing volunteers.

And we’d also like to share some big news: Walk Run Wag 2016 is on!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 4, 2016 to walk, run and wag with us again!

Watch this space for more details coming soon!

The Results Are In!

Hey runners, visit the WRW 2015 page at PT Timing to find your time, and thanks again for your participation!

Thank You!

Well, Walk Run Wag 2015 is in the books. The weather could have been better, but the event was still a huge success thanks to you!

Participants, fundraisers, sponsors, volunteers and other community members who supported today’s event: we thank you all. This event would not be possible without you, and your enthusiasm for it made it our biggest, most successful WRW to date.

Now, who do we need to talk to about guaranteeing a drier, less chilly WRW 2016?!

Watch this space for more details in the coming weeks about how today’s event will help Milwaukee animals. And thanks again!

Today is the day!

WRW 2015 is here!

Rain or shine, we’re at Hart Park in Wauwatosa beginning at 8 a.m. for registration and packet pickup. We’ll be set up near the band shell at 68th and State.

The humans-only race starts at 10 a.m. Runners with dogs start at 10:15. All walkers start at 10:30. Our after-race party kicks off soon after.

So come on down, have fun and a huge thank you for your support!

Rain or Shine…Tails Will Wag!

Yes, the weather forecast for Walk Run Wag tomorrow isn’t the greatest, but hey, at least it’s not snowing, right?!

WRW is a rain or shine event, so we will be there starting 8 a.m. for registration and packet pickup. Start time for the run without dogs is 10 a.m., followed by runners with dogs at 10:15 and walkers at 10:30.

And regardless of the weather, we’ve still got tons of fun activities planned, plus vendors rescues with adoptables and more!

See you in a few hours!

Get Your Stuff (or Register) Today!

Come on down to MADACC today, 3:30-7 pm, to register for tomorrow’s event or, if you’re already registered, to pick up your race materials. And while you’re there, why not pick up a MADACC hoodie or other cool gear?

Tomorrow may be chilly, but we promise you’ll get a warm and fuzzy feeling helping Milwaukee’s neediest animals.

MADACC is located at 3839 W. Burnham St. In West Milwaukee. See you there!

Friday: Early Packet Pickup and Last Chance for Advance Registration

Saturday’s Walk Run Wag will be the biggest yet. That’s great news for our cause, but it also means a lot of people registering or picking up race materials 8-10 am before the race.

We strongly encourage you to pick up your race materials in advance, on Friday, 3:30-7pm, at MADACC, 3839 W. Burnham, West Milwaukee. You can also register at that time.

That’s right…haven’t registered yet? Do it Friday at MADACC 3:30-7pm, and avoid the lines on Saturday!

How Walk Run Wag helps animals…and your community!

When we say money raised through registration, sponsorship and fundraising for WRW goes directly to Milwaukee’s neediest animals, we mean it! Because our parent organization, Friends of MADACC, is entirely run by volunteers, we don’t have to worry about paying any big salaries or other similar expenses.

So where exactly does the money go?

Net proceeds from Walk Run Wag for MADACC support two goals:

  • Reduce the number of animals taken in by MADACC through outreach, education and spay/neuter programs for the community
  • Increase the number of animals available for adoption through facility improvements, enrichment and foster program support

So thank you again for your support. See you Saturday!

THIS JUST IN… You can register on Friday!

Did you miss online registration? Don’t want to wait in long lines Saturday morning? Not a problem!

You can register at Early Packet Pickup this Friday, 3:30-7pm, at MADACC, 3839 W. Burnham, West Milwaukee. Register and get your race materials immediately on Friday, then skip the long day-of registration lines on Saturday!

Online Registration Has Closed

Our online registration has closed, but you can still sign up on Saturday morning before the event, beginning at 8 a.m. We recommend arriving as early as possible to avoid long lines.

If you’ve already registered, thanks! Please pick up your race materials at our Early Packet Pickup this Friday at MADACC, 3839 W. Burnham, West Milwaukee, from 3:30 to 7 p.m. If you can’t make the early pickup, don’t worry, you can get your packet on Saturday at Hart Park, beginning at 8 a.m.

See you soon!
