Run Back to School


Milwaukee Recreation invites all runners and walkers to join us for the 13th Annual Run Back to School! Sign up for this event to enjoy a 5K run or 1.5 mile walk through Washington Park, followed by a host of family activities. All event proceeds will support MPS Youth Recreation programs.

You can also watch the highlights from the 2019 event in the video above, or click through our photo gallery here.

Proceeds from the RBTS help to support MPS youth recreation programs. Here are some of the highlights of what’s been accomplished with funds from past events:

  • Purchase much needed youth sports equipment - including bowling ramps for our Special Olympics athletes
  • Opportunities to expand student participation in basketball leagues
  • Support a once in a lifetime opportunity for an adaptive student athlete to attend the Special Olympics UNITY Sports Weekend in Orlando, Florida during the NBA All Star Game
