The Chocolate 5k comes to Milwaukee on Mother’s Day
Join us for a sweet Mother's Day at Estabrook Park in Milwaukee, WI.
NR Road Racing presents a chocolatey good time. We are offering you sweet treats to keep you going throughout the 5k. Yes there will still be water stations, but for those of you with a sweet tooth, you can also have a little piece of joy. Enjoy a family-friendly three mile course with your friends, family, and other choc-oholic strangers. It doesn’t matter how fast or old you are; everyone is welcome to participate and join in the fun! After the race, we’ll be still partying and filling up with chocolate. You are invited to hang out and party to the music and have some more chocolate on us! Family and friends are always encouraged to join in the party at the end!
Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies was the country’s first national, unified, social and recreational program for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). In Wisconsin, Best Buddies is located in schools throughout the greater Milwaukee area, plus currently launching a Citizens program, which will expand the adult friendship program to all adults capable of participating in a mutually beneficial friendship in Milwaukee County.
Theresa Nemetz, State Director of Best Buddies Wisconsin said, “We are so excited to be the charity partner for the 2014 Chocolate 5K. With our mission based in friendship, this race will be a perfect opportunity for participants to enjoy a delicious event with their friends, and hopefully mothers too.”
