Superheroes Come Out for Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools

GSAFE’s Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools was a super success!  On Saturday, October 11th, more than 350 people came out in support of safe schools for all students.

This event could not happen without the super-team of volunteers that help with registration, timing, act as course marshals, and help set up the gym in the morning.  The following groups put forth a superheroic effort and helped make Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools run smoothly:

  • Black Hawk Middle School GSA – Water Station #1
  • Stoughton High School GSA – Water Station #2
  • ACT Ride volunteers – course marshals
  • Madison College GSA – course marshals
  • Edgewood College SAFE group – course marshals
  • GSAFE’s Youth Leadership Board – course marshals

A special thanks to Sue Ryan, our graphic design volunteer who has created the look and logo for our event since its first year back in 2007!

In case you haven’t seen them yet, race results for the 5K and 10K race can be seen here.  You can view photos from the event here.

This year’s Superheroes, the folks who make the commitment to try and raise $500 apiece, brought in just over $25,000 for GSAFE.  There is still time to donate to our Superheroes!  Access our Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools fundraising page here.  If you are interested in learning more about being a Superhero for next year’s event, contact Kristen at kristen@gsafewi.org.

Thank you to this year’s Superheroes, sponsors, and donors!

Save the date!  Next year’s Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools will be on Sunday, October 11th, 2015!
