This is a unique opportunity for individuals, families and businesses to work together to raise money for their non-profit organization. Organizations register for the Human Race. Participants then select from one of the participating organizations and collect pledges. Over 50 different nonprofit organizations participate in the Human Race every year! Which one will you support?
The Human Race is a 5k walk, 5k non-competitive run or one-mile walk held at Thrivent Financial on Ballard Rd. in Appleton. The Volunteer Center organizes this event from media coverage to training team captains even provides the hot dogs thus lessening the strain on local agencies. The Volunteer Center provides a kick-off lunch to distribute the Toolkits, Pledge Forms, communicates any changes for the new year, provides tips and explains the on-line pledging procedures. From the Kick-Off luncheon to the day of the event, the staff advises the teams with their planning and soliciting.
