On May 20, Next Door launches our 2022 Walk for Children, challenging our participants to walk, run, or ride a mile for a child.
This year we’re excited to offer three ways to participate:
Sponsors at the $2,500 Silver level and above will receive a Pop-up Walk for Children kit containing all of the materials needed to host a Walk for Children event at a time and location that works best for your team. Click "Become a Sponsor" on the Get Involved tab above for more information.
Community members are invited to join us virtually the week of May 20-27. Set your own distance goal and invite friends to join you for this week-long event. We’ll give you tips on how to complete your pledged miles and cheer you on every step, stride, or pedal of the way!
Next Door Families are invited to an in-person event on May 26th at one of our two campuses. No pre-registration is necessary to enjoy this family event.
Individuals who raise $100 or more will receive a Walk for Children t-shirt!
Our goal is to raise $75,000 in support of high quality, early childhood programs.
Last year, more than 430 Next Door Virtual Walk for Children participants walked, ran, and rode 8,463 miles to help build bright futures for our children and their families. This year, as our Walk continues to grow, we hope that you'll join us for the 2022 Virtual Walk for Children.
Your support of the Virtual Walk for Children helps us continue to provide critical programming and educational materials for children ages birth to K5 in our community.
The success of the Walk for Children relies on individuals and teams of friends, families, co-workers and neighbors led by generous people like you. Every person you recruit and every dollar you raise increases awareness and helps Next Door provide critical programming to children ages birth to 5 years old in the Milwaukee area. Thank you for taking on this important role! With one email, text, phone call, or social media post you can ask friends and family to join you in helping to accelerate equity for our students. You’ll be amazed how many people will support you!
Next Door can’t do this valuable work without the help of generous supporters like you. We sincerely hope you will commit to walking a mile or more to support high quality early childhood education at Next Door. Your commitment to our mission helps build stronger families and a stronger community!
