The 2017 Arthritis Foundation Run/Walk to Milwaukee Irish Fest happens this Saturday, August 19th at the Lakefront.
The Run/Walk is a 5 kilometer run and walk along Milwaukee's beautiful lakefront and proceeds support the Arthritis Foundation's research into finding an answer to the nations's most common cause of disability. We at CW 18 and My24 are thrilled to be associated with this event and help raise awareness to this debilitating illness.
It's a serious subject but there's no need for the Run/Walk to be serious. Wear an Irish themed costume. Bring your lucky charms! Run or walk with a pot-o-gold. Dance across the finish line like a leprechaun! We really want to see which one of you has the greatest spirit. The Best Costume and Most Spirited contest winners will be announced and awarded prizes as the post-event celebration ceremony.
So get ready for a weekend of fun at Irish Fest and help out a worthy cause. The Run/Walk starts at the North gate of Milwaukee Irish Fest grounds. It happens rain or shine. See you there all you leprechauns!!
