The 2015 Fleet Feet Race Series

Good news for those of you participating in Fleet Feet’s Madison Bear Garden race series this year — the Poppy Walk & 5k Run has been added to the series! 

Our 5K, which is chip-timed by Under the Sun Events, is one of the Short Races in the series this year. That means that if you’re signed up for the series, running in our 5K can earn you points!

For more information or to register for the Series, check it out on Fleet Feet’s website. To register online for the Poppy Walk 5k, click here.

Are You a Poppy Pal?

791575092002_915420364002_1060_0042Did you know that families, as well as organizations, can sponsor the Poppy Walk? Your personal sponsorship at the Poppy Pal level ($100 or $250) makes a real difference for the people we serve. All contributions are tax-deductible and go directly to participant care. Plus, you get your family name (or a Poppy Pal name of your choosing — once we had “The Squirrels”) on the back of our Poppy Walk t-shirts with the other sponsors!

To get started, just click on the “Sponsor Now” button, or go to our Sponsorship page for more information.
