Race for a Reason

Elevate and Realty Executives are back with an opportunity to get a great workout in with friends while supporting a cause that is close to your heart! Race for the Reason at Fox River Park in Waukesha is set for the morning of Saturday, May 22 with two start times to distance the crowd, one at 8:30 AM and 9:30 AM! 

Our favorite part of this event is that you get to pick the cause for your run/walk. 2021 will be Elevate’s 5th annual Race for Your Reason: a unique 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk option as well as a virtual option.  Participants will select “their reason” for racing.  This year they are supporting Hope Street, JRs Pups N Stuff, Sals House, Habitat for Humanity and Before 16.  Choose one of these charities, split your registration across all 5 charities or write in your favorite non profit!

In 2018, Race for Your Reason raised over $12,600 for over 20 charities. Join in this year for the 5K, 1 mile Run/Walk or virtual option. Each participant will receive a custom race t-shirt and swag bag of goodies! Children ages 9 and under are free to walk along but will not get race t-shirts.
