Welcome WELS Kid's Marathon Particiapnts

Welcome WELS Kid’s Marathon participants,

We are excited that you’ve signed up for the first ever WELS Kid’s Marathon! The response that we received was far greater than we ever expected. We had no idea how many to expect but just under 200 participants have signed up! Wow, that’s fantastic! Thank you!

Hopefully by now everyone has received their tracking logs and you’re well on your way to tracking your reading hours/books and your running/walking miles. If you still have not received a tracking log please email us at

We have developed a website to give you basic information on our program, maps to the final event and any program related news or updates as well as the emails going out. Please go to

We’ve been blessed by a number of area businesses that have agreed to sponsor our program. These generous corporations have allowed us to keep the cost of our program down and it also offers us the ability to offer some exciting prizes. Please support our sponsors if possible. We will be highlighting a different sponsor in each WELS Kid’s Marathon email Update. This weeks sponsor is The Milwaukee Iron Indoor Football Team.

The Milwaukee Iron Arena Football team has kindly offered our program participants a free ticket to their home game on July 24th at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Kick-off time is 7 PM. The Iron has offered to seat our group in the same section and publicly announce our group. Any adults that would accompany their children to the game would need to buy a ticket. Tickets are $15. This seating area is in the lower bowl of the Bradley Center and they are end zone seats which are very close to the action and to the area where free T-shirts are tossed during the game.

At this point in time, we just need to know the numbers of seats that should be reserved for our group. If you’re interested in coming to the game, please email us your name and number of seats requested along with how many participant children and how many adults plan to attend from your family. We need to finalize ticket numbers by 7/20.
Here’s the link to the Milwaukee Iron
As we get closer to game time more information will be shared.

Thank you,

WELS Kid’s Marathon Organizing Committee
