Leader-Telegram Buckshot Run for Special Olympics

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Carson Park
Carson Park

Join us for the 35th Anniversary of the Leader-Telegram Buckshot Run benefiting the local Special Olympics program. This 2 mile run/walk in beautiful Carson Park is ranked one of the top 10 races in Wisconsin. It’s family friendly and tough enough for the hard-core competitors. Ages 5-85 typically participate each year and average attendance for the Tuesday night race is 500 people. Help us grow this year’s event by inviting a family member or friend to join you!
100% of money raised from the race stays locally to help 1,000 Special Olympics athletes with intellectual disabilities train and compete in sports year-round. It’s a life changing opportunity for these kids and adults.
After the race, enjoy concessions, music, race results and an awards ceremony during the Party in the Park.
Check in begins at 4:30 p.m. and the race begins at 6 p.m. with awards following at 7 p.m.
For those who can’t attend Tuesday, join us for the main event Saturday, September 2.
Volunteers also needed. Contact Karen if you can help a few hours. kkraus@specialolympicswisconsin.org
