Thanks to the Milwaukee Sun for shining the light on the success of the 3rd Annual JJ Watt Foundation 5K Run/Walk held in Pewaukee, WI, on June 22. This year we had our highest number of participants yet, and we’re looking forward to giving all of the funds raised to continue the foundation’s mission of supporting after-school athletic programs for children.
High-fives and a huge round of applause to everyone who came out for the third annual JJ Watt 5K Run/Walk this year, held at Waukesha County Technical College! We could not be more stoked to have JJ back in his hometown, and to see the support continue to grow from year to year. All of the funds raised will go towards after-school athletic programs both locally in Wisconsin, and down in Texas. You can find more coverage of the event here.
