What is the City Stadium Run For Veterans? The best way to answer this question is to briefly explain the three goals associated with the run.
To showcase historic City Stadium, home of the Green Bay Packers from 1925-1956. In 2002, City Stadium was renovated to the tune of $300,000 to help embrace the proud history of the Green Bay Packers. Some of the features of the stadium you will see are a new sign, gate, memorial garden and historic plaques of Packers history when they called City Stadium home.
To feature and showcase the beautiful green parks and pedestrian trails along the 5K course. The course will take you through three gorgeous parks tucked along the East River utilizing the East River Trail and the Cora Vanderperren Trail. You will get the feel of being in a small town setting when you are actually just minutes from downtown Green Bay!
To help and showcase our Veterans. Each year we will earmark a Veteran cause for our proceeds. The first four years have generated over $34,000 for our worthy men and women who served our country. We are so excited to announce that this year's beneficiary will be for the Northeastern Wisconsin’s Veterans Treatment Court. Northeastern Wisconsin’s Veterans Treatment Court is "specialty court within the criminal justice system that assists veterans who accept responsibility for qualifying felony or misdemeanor offenses committed and who want assistance from fellow veterans, the U.S. and Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs, and veteran’s service organizations to address treatment, rehabilitation, employment and housing needs."
