It's that time of year again!!... Battle of the Badges, founded in 2012, was started as a charity softball game between the Middleton Police Department & Middleton Fire District. In 2014, a charity 5K fun run/walk was added, which is run prior to the softball game. In addition to having a fun, family-friendly event to bring the community & their emergency responders from Police, Fire & EMS together, the main purpose of the event is to raise awareness & funds to assist local families affected by childhood diseases.
One of our major fundraisers is tonight, July 19, from 4pm-9pm at Dickey's Barbecue Pit at 8225 Greenway Boulevard in Middleton. Dickey's has graciously offered to donate 10% of all proceeds from tonight to Battle of the Badges.
Registration is also open for the 5K, to take place before the police vs fire softball game on Saturday, August 13th.
5K fun run/walk starts at 8:30AM - sign up by August 1st to make sure you get a free t-shirt: https://runsignup.com/Race/WI/Middleton/BattleoftheBadges5KFunRunWalk
