Run For Charity
The Milwaukee Marathon is committed to helping the community both in Milwaukee and across the United States. With that, we’re proud to annouce our partnership with the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.).
MACC Fund supported research has had a significant impact on children battling cancer. They’ve helped increase the five-year survival rate for all types of childhood cancer rates from 20% when the MACC Fund began to 80% today… but the battle is far from over, and we still have work to do.
Thanks to generous donors, participants, and volunteers, the MACC Fund has contributed over $57 MILLION DOLLARS to childhood cancer and related blood disorders research. Our goal is to cure the MACC Fund out of existence. Your support of critical research impacts children throughout the country and the world. Successful protocols developed in Wisconsin have become the standard for patient care across not only the United States – but around the world.
Ways To Contribute
The MACC Fund uses every dollar raised to help children in need, so we’ve created multiple ways for you to get involved!
Option 1: You’ll have the option to donate to MACC Fund when registering for the Milwaukee Marathon! Every penny counts, and we appreciate your support! All donations when you register will go directly to the MACC Fund! Already registered or want to donate more? You can also make a donation directly by clicking here.
Option 2: Create a fundraising page when you sign up and become a fundraising master! When you register to run, you’ll have the option to create your own personal fundraising page. Once you’ve done that, just send the link to that page to your friends and family to let them know you’re running in the Milwaukee Marathon to raise money for the MACC Fund. They’ll be able to donate money online directly to your page and you’ll be able to track your progress, add photo and video updates, and receive comments and messages from donors. You’ll also be able to see how much other runners have raised!
