Kettle Classic in June

This annual run/bike/hike event offers something for everyone. A family-friendly fundraiser takes place at Lad Lake’s Dousman campus in the morning and offers participants a chance to walk a leisurely mile, pace a 5k or cycle 15 or 30 miles through the stunning Kettle Moraine. The Kettle Classic offers something for everyone. Enjoy the walk, ride or run even more knowing that your efforts will also help troubled youth race toward success. Help is needed both before, during and after the event to promote, organize and assist with registration, kids activities, food tent, and more.
