Fight For Air Climb Wisconsin

Fight For Air Climb Wisconsin

US Bank Center (map)

When you participate in a Fight For Air Climb, you are stepping up to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by lung disease. Participants raise funds to support the mission of the American Lung Association while training to climb the stairs of a skyscraper.

Whether you are climbing alone or with friends and family, as a part of a healthy lifestyle or in honor of all those who are affected by lung disease, you will achieve a sense of personal accomplishment as you reach the top of the building and the height of your fundraising potential. Every step you take moves us forward in our fight for healthy lungs and clean air.

We encourage you to start today and are here to help you, from the first step in your Climb all the way to the top.

You may also pick up your packet on event day before you climb.  Each person must be present to pick up their packet.  If not able to attend in person, in order to pick up a teammates packet, you must have a copy of their driver’s license or a printed email stating they have permission to pick up your packet.  No exceptions!

Can I pick up my teammate’s packet? Yes, but you must bring approval from those climbers or a printed email stating you have permission to pick up their packet, and the teammates must have met their individual fundraising minimum of $100. No exceptions! You will be responsible for giving your teammate their packet. Please notify the Special Events Staff before packet pick-up and they can ensure all the packets you are picking up are together.

If I do packet pick-up prior to Climb day, what do I have to do the day of the Climb? If you have more money to turn in, you can do that at registration. Otherwise, you can go straight to gear check and get ready to climb. Please remember to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your Climb start time. This gives you time to check your gear, warm up and find your team.

The alternative 5k: When off road running is not for you, this is an easier more leisurely option. The alternative 5k is an out and back on the paved Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail through the beautiful Sakatah old growth forest. This event IS NOT timed.

The 10.5k follows the road around Lake Sakatah. Just before the 4th mile the 10.5k goes off road for a 1⁄4 mile before connecting you with the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail and dive deep into the heart of the park finishing the last leg of your run surrounded by the beautiful green forest. This is a timed event.

The 11.6 mile bike ride follows the road around Lake Sakatah then continues east up a long steady hill for the first 7 miles. Before looping back and connecting with the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail. Helmets are required to ride in this event. This is not a race, official times will be given.

Join us June 22, 2019 as Wayzata Free Church hosts a city­wide 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run. All funds raised from this event will benefit MN Law Enforcement Memorial Association (LEMA).

LEMA provides assistance to the law enforcement community and others and to surviving family members of peace officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. As a church we want to serve alongside our community and generously give back to our police officers who selflessly serve us. Our goal is to raise $25,000 on behalf of LEMA.

The Serve 5K Run/Walk is chip timed and all paid participants (who register by June 1) are guaranteed an official race t­-shirt. This event also features a Kids Fun Run. Kids (7 and younger) have the opportunity to run alongside local law enforcement officers and receive a participation prize.

Not local but still want to join in the fun? We have a virtual option for you as well. Simply register for the VIRTUAL 5K Run/Walk and we will send your race t-­shirt and bib in the mail (continental US only). You can join us on June 22 (or anytime it works for you) right where you live! Share your experience with us by posting pictures on social media using #wayzatafree #serve5K (Note: Registration for the virtual 5K closes on June 1.)

Strollers are welcome; NO in-line skates or dogs will be permitted. Race is run rain or shine. Cancelled only for extreme weather.

Point to La Pointe Swim

Point to La Pointe Swim

Beach (map)

Swimming to Madeline Island has been a storied feat around the Bayfield area for decades. Starting as a community swim for 24 people in 2006, the Point to La Pointe has grown into a thriving race that sells out annually at 500 swimmers. The course is a straight 2.1 mile swim on Lake Superior from Bayfield to Madeline Island. The course follows the same route of the winter ice road, starting at the beach at the end of Washington Ave in Bayfield. It is approximately parallel to the route of the Madeline Island Ferry, finishing about 3/4 mile north of the ferry dock.  Swimmers have encountered all of Lake Superior's moods over the years, from calm, flat water to strong crosswinds with 2 foot waves. This event is registered with and approved by the US Coast Guard.
