5k run and 2-mile walk

The 12th annual Gary's Gallop 5k run and 2-mile walk presented by Bloom! Landscaping was held April 11, 2015. The race, a tribute to the late Wisconsin Lutheran College president Dr. Gary Greenfield, had a scenic course through Underwood Parkway and the WLC Krauss-Miller-Lutz Outdoor Athletic Complex.

Thanks to all of our event sponsors and participants! The 5k results are available via the links in the sidebar.

WLC TRAINING PROGRAM: All participants in Gary's Gallop who registered by February 24 were invited to participate in WLC's 5k training program. Whether runners are looking to improve a 5k time or are participating in a 5k for the first time, they were able to take advantage of WLC's six-week training program, which included an individual membership for the month of March to the Wauwatosa location of the Wisconsin Athletic Club. Many thanks to the WAC for this opportunity to train indoors and for their support of WLC's training program!

REMOTE PARTICIPATION: Those who weren't in the Milwaukee area on April 11 were able to run or walk Gary's Gallop remotely! Remote participants: submit your finish time online to qualify for award placement.

SHOE DRIVE: Thank you for supporting Soles for Jesus by bringing your unwanted shoes to fill donation bins at Gary’s Gallop. It is estimated that over one billion pairs of unworn shoes are taking up space in U.S. basements and closets. Some are outdated or outgrown, but many of them are in good condition and considered a treasure to the millions of people who live barefoot lives in developing countries like Africa. Soles For Jesus exists to share the love of Christ by distributing shoes to the underserved. To learn more, visit solesforjesus.org.
