Battle of the Badges Charity Softball & 5K Fun Run/Walk
Aug 9, 2014 9:30am
Firefighters Memorial Park, Airport Rd, Middleton WI
Battle of the Badges, founded in 2012, was started as a charity softball game between the Middleton Police Department and the Middleton Fire District. In addition to having a fun, family-friendly event to bring the community and their emergency responders together, the main purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds to assist families affected by childhood cancer. We partner with UW Health and the American Family Childrens Hospital to select a child and family in need and all funds raised by the event go directly to the child and family affected by cancer, as well as the Badger Childhood Cancer Network.
