Charity Groups

The Wisconsin Marathon is proud to partner with several local, regional, and national charities for the race. Without these groups, we would not be able to put on the race. The groups are out on site helping you to cross the finish line so please return the favor and support them back.

1HOPE seeks collective impact with the civic, business and faith communities to transform &
develop neighborhoods, fill the gaps for teaching and mentoring children in after school
programs, and to provide services, education and specialized training to a network of
volunteers committed to support to local community foster care families.

Community Building – 1HOPE builds relationships with local people, where they are recognized
as the primary architects of a more sustainable future. We facilitate coming together to
discover, connect and mobilize the assets required to create and realize their shared long term
Vision for the geographic area we serve.

Advocacy – 1HOPE partners with an After-School Mentorship Program, Crossroads Kids Club,
that is faith-based. We will continue to operate our free after-school program at Brass
Elementary every Monday of the school year serving around 30 students. We are looking to
expand our program into additional Elementary Schools in need of after-school resources.

Rehabilitation – 1HOPE mobilizes volunteer power through our Foster Family Support Network
to support the foster care cause in our community. Faith communities, civic groups, businesses,
and individuals will all be invited to do something to improve capacity and stability in foster
care. These children are some of the most vulnerable members of our community; therefore,
when you change the trajectory of a foster child you literally change our community forever.
Everybody can do something to help support a foster family. Whether it be through meals,
babysitting, or notes of encouragement, we all have a role to play.
