Whether it is a leisurely walk, a well-paced run, or a bicycle ride through the stunning Kettle Moraine, Lad Lake’s Kettle Classic offers something for everyone. You will find tremendous gratification knowing that your participation in the Kettle Classic will help challenged youth cross the finish line of success. For added enjoyment, we added a 1K fun dash for kids this year! Proceeds directly support the at-risk youth who Lad Lake serves.
Lad Lake’s counselors cultivate independence for more than 1,100 kids every year with support from the community, which allows us to provide support networks for foster kids, skill-building and vocational/academic education for challenged youth, and a safe-haven for exploited and abused girls.
When challenged youth find a better course in life, everybody wins!
Event check-in begins 30 minutes before each event.
