Kettle Classic

Kettle Classic – Sat June 19, 2021

Join us as we celebrate our 8th annual Kettle Classic, Bike Walk Run Event. 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.

The safety and well-being of our participants for the Kettle Classic Bike Walk Run event remain very important. Therefore, the 2021 experience will be a “socially distanced” in-person event, with a limited number of people, and an opportunity to participate virtually.  We will adhere to all local and state regulations, CDC social distancing, and safety guidelines to provide a fun and safe event this year. Masks are required.

Proceeds directly support more than 1,100 kids in our care each year. With the community’s support, we are able 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.

We know that we are “Stronger, Together” and we hope you will join us for this year’s 8th annual, Kettle Classic Bike Walk Run Event. When challenged youth find a better course in life everybody wins!
