About This Activity

Join us on August 12th for the 24th Annual Sprint for Spina Bifida family friendly event as we celebrate "Chasing Our Dreams"!  We are counting down the days to our event. Here are some important deadlines: 

  • Team fundraisers or event sponsors registered after July 31st will not be listed on event t-shirts or signage.
  • Online event registration closes on Aug 8
  • Team fundraising winner will be determined on Aug 11th at noon; the team raising the most money will receive 30 tickets (for the team/not per person) to our Rowdy Race Day Raffle to increase your chances of winning the prize you hope for

Race day includes light refreshments, resources and vendor displays, games, mural painting, Kid's Dash, awards and more. This event benefits Wisconsin families affected by the disabling birth defect, Spina Bifida. Funds raised provide financial assistance to families, camp scholarships and community social events. Thank you for joining SBWIS. For more information visit our website at www.sbwis.org 

To ensure everyone's comfort and safety, no bikes, roller blades or pets will be allowed. The Sprint for Spina Bifida will occur rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel for severe weather threats. Should this occur, no refunds will be provided and your entry fee will be used as a donation to SBWIS. Thank you for your understanding.
