There is Still Time to Sign Up for the BCF 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk
The Brewers Community Foundation’s 15th Annual 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk will be held at Miller Park on Saturday, July 20, starting at 8 a.m. and there is still time to sign up! All participants must be pre-registered and it is recommended that those interested register early for this event.The unique feature of this event is that participants actually get to test their skills against the Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM, who also run the course. The run will begin and end at the Klement’s Sausage Haus where the Brat, Hot Dog, Chorizo, Italian Sausage and Polish Sausage join the crowd on the course. The route also makes its way around the warning track of Miller Park. Brewers coaching assistant/digital media coordinator Joe Crawford will be the honorary starter for this year’s event.
For the $30 registration fee, participants in the Run/Walk receive a commemorative t-shirt, a Terrace Reserved ticket voucher good for one of eight Brewers 2013 home games, a bottle of Aquafina water, a Klement’s hot dog and a beer for participants 21 and older. The overall top male finisher and the overall top female finisher also receive a year’s worth of Klement’s meat products.
This year, the fundraising component returns as participants and fans are again encouraged to help raise additional funds to benefit Fisher House Wisconsin, a “home away from home” for military and veterans’ families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease, or injury at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee. . When registering to participate, fans will also be able to set up a fundraising page to help raise funds for Fisher House Wisconsin. Fundraising incentive levels start at $100 and increase incrementally to the Grand Prize, which includes a 2013 Brewers Team autographed baseball and an opportunity to throw out a first pitch. The top prize is awarded to the highest fundraiser that raises over $5,000.
