First Stage Announces Partnership with Monster Run
By Richard Elver
First Stage is excited to announce that we will be the official charity partner of the 3rd annual Monster Run on October, 17! We’re thrilled to be partnering with Monster Run, whose previous runs have turned out over 3,000 participants. We believe that together we could produce the largest turnout yet for Monster Run!
The 3rd annual Monster Run, produced by Vision Event Management, will retain many aspects from its successful first two years. The Run will feature a Wickedly Wild 5 Miler, a Goose Bump Filled 5K (3.1 miles) and Frightfully Fun Kids’ Runs which are less than .5 miles long. One difference from previous Runs is the new location at Hart Park in Wauwatosa.
Costumes are certainly encouraged but not required. Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers but walkers are also welcome to join in the fun. Awards will also be given to the best individual, group and kid costumes so be sure to get creative with your wardrobe!
Monster Run is open for team and family registration through its website MonsterRun.com. There is no age limit so the whole family can take part in the festivities! We will have delicious post-race treats and food as well as free “witches brew” (beer) for registered participants over 21.
The event needs over 150 volunteers. We are looking for volunteers to take on fun roles such as being “course rock stars,” who otherwise might be called course marshals, and working at packet pickup before the race to hand out materials and bibs to runners.
Participants can help raise even more for First Stage by fundraising on their own. All additional fundraising provided by runners will be donated to First Stage! Visit Monster Run’s website for more information on individual fundraising.
The Monster Run has quickly become a Milwaukee Metro Halloween tradition for many and our partnership can make this year’s run the biggest yet. Come join the fun and support First Stage!
