The Bellin Run is one of the largest 10k events in the US.  This special event has drawn as many as 20,000 participants in it’s 43 year history!  Presenting sponsor, Bellin Health has been a key stakeholder to bring health to the community of Green Bay and is a leader in the endurance event world!  The Bellin Run was the first event we participated in 2 whole years before we started the WI Chapter.  Check out this story!

This is our largest event week and this year, we had the honor to make it extra special.  mTT Wisconsin is the host of the 2019 and 2020 myTEAM TRIUMPH International Conference whereby chapters from all over the US and Canada come to Green Bay to share best practices, inspire and challenge one another to have a deeper impact on our mission!

The week started with a special training run/ social on Wednesday evening followed by a picnic!

Thursday kicked off with a number of sessions around fundraising, marketing, team building and so on!  One of the highlights was to have Dave McGillivray, the Race Director of the Boston Marathon speak to our group about building strong partnerships with events!  With his long time relationship with Team Hoyt, Dave is a strong advocate for inclusion!  After the conference day, our team enjoyed the Run with Greatness, a 2 mile fun with with Bellin Run elite runners such as Uta Pippig, Joan Samuelsen, Bill Rodgers, Meb Keflezighi!

Friday was a special day as we were host to a special speaker, Chuck Loring presenting to more than 100 non profit leaders on Purposeful Boards, Powerful Fundraising.  The event challenged our team and we are excited to start to put our learning in action!

Thank you to our event sponsors Fox Communities Credit Union, ASPIRO, Curative Connections and CP!

Later that night, we hosted the TRIUMPH Mile, a 1 mile walk/run for people with disabilities who are ambulatory.  We had 70 Captains and 50 Angels!  This has quickly become one of our favorite events of the year!

Special thank you to the Green Bay Preble Optimists Club and Festival Foods for being great sponsors of this event!

And then we get to the big day.  The Bellin Run 10k on Saturday.  We were so excited to have a record team of 54 Captains and 134 Angels!  This is the largest mTT event worldwide!!!  The event was incredible.  Our Captains and Angels were such an inspiration for inclusion out on the course!
