The CVSA 5k Run/Walk “Run for the Bucket” is celebrating 10 years. For 9 of those 10 years I have participated in some form. I really enjoy this race because it combines two things I am passionate about – running and CVS awareness.
It has become a tradition for me to travel to Wisconsin every year (I now live in the Chicagoland area). The race brings together families and individuals affected by CVS. It is great to see all of the younger kids having fun with the 1/2 mile kids fun run before the 5K. They all get a finisher’s medal!
The location is great as well. Frame Park is located in the heart of downtown Waukesha and is conveniently located near the highway. The race has also grown throughout the years – it had to be moved to the larger Rotary Building within Frame Park.
In addition to funding CVSA’s important initiatives, partial proceeds will benefit promising medical research at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the areas of causes, diagnosis and treatment of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.
Can’t join us on June 4th, but still want to show your support? Complete a registration form, find sponsors to support you and CVSA will assign a volunteer to walk on your behalf.
There is still time to register!
