Brewers Community Foundation’s 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk Registration Open!

Brewers Community Foundation’s 16th Annual 5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk will be held at Miller Park on Saturday, July 26, starting at 8 a.m. Registration is now available by visiting Brewers.com/5krunwalk.

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.

All participants must be pre-registered and the event is expected to sell out quickly. It is recommended that those interested register early for this 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 2014 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. When registering to participate, fans will also be able to set up a fundraising page to help raise funds for Fisher House Wisconsin.  Please note that the Run/Walk registration fee cannot be applied toward personal fundraising levels. Fundraising incentive levels start at $100 and increase incrementally to the Grand Prize, which includes a Yovani Gallardo autographed baseball and an opportunity to throw out a first pitch.  The top prize is awarded to the fundraiser who raises the most over $5,000.

Fisher House provides 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. Currently, veterans from 23 different states of all generations travel to the Milwaukee VA Medical Center for treatment at the Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) center, while 8,000 Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans receive treatment here in Milwaukee for their wounds or injuries. Veterans and their families living beyond 50 miles from the Milwaukee VA hospital are eligible to stay for free at the Fisher House if they need to overnight. The Fisher House program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and ensures that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Due to this need, the future Milwaukee home will be one of the largest built in the United States. Fisher House Wisconsin is scheduled to break ground in May 2014.
