After you register you’ll be given your very own fundraising page. Help the UEC raise money by sharing your fundraising page with your network! The more funds you raise, the more UEC swag you’ll earn and the more you’ll help our community!
Here’s a look at what your fundraising could earn you:
$63: UEC Klean Kanteen water bottle
The UEC partners with 63 local schools to provide hands-on environmental education to urban youth through our Neighborhood Environmental Education Project (NEEP).
$130: UEC tote bag
130 species of birds are currently living in the restored wetland, prairie, oak savanna, woodland, riparian, and river habitats of the Menomonee Valley thanks to the efforts of the UEC land stewardship team and thousands of hours of volunteer work.
$220: unique UEC branded apparel (more details coming soon!)
220,000 people visit our parks annually, engaging in community programs, participating in outdoor recreation, and learning about the natural world right here in the heart of our city.
All registered participants will receive the official 2017 HKE MKE t-shirt.
Our beloved Packers don’t kick-off until 7:30 Sunday evening, so we have plenty of time to hit the trails. Let’s HKE MKE!
