Happy 99th, Women Voters!

ON JUNE 10, 2018, RUN OR WALK
TO CELEBRATE THE 99TH ANNIVERSARY OF
WISCONSIN'S RATIFICATION OF THE
19TH AMENDMENT

 The June 10, 2018 Suffrage Run & Walk celebrates Wisconsin’s first-in-the-nation status on women’s suffrage. Funds raised will support current efforts to protect and extend voting rights.

The June 10, 2018 Suffrage Run & Walk celebrates Wisconsin’s first-in-the-nation status on women’s suffrage. Funds raised will support current efforts to protect and extend voting rights.

Ninety-nine years ago on June 10, Wisconsin became the first state to ratify the 19th Amendment recognizing women's right to vote. Celebrate the 99th anniversary on June 10, 2018, by participating in an unofficial 1.9K community walk and 19K run in downtown Madison that will raise money to support voting rights work in Wisconsin.

This year's event will assist planning for the 100th anniversary in 2019. Lessons learned from this year's informal Walk/Run will help next year's organizers to provide the professional amenities and support that are standard with professionally operated running events.

Register and make at least a $30 donation to reserve a t-shirt! 100% of funds raised will be donated to the Wisconsin chapters of the League of Women Voters and the ACLU.
