Who is Dairy Cares of Wisconsin?
Whether it’s in their blood or the way each generation is raised, Wisconsin farmers have a reputation of giving back, serving their communities, and assisting others during challenging times. In 2011, a group of folks from the Dairy Industry decided it was time to do just that, and raise funds to help others. As a result, the Dairy Cares of Wisconsin was formed.
Much like those in the Dairy Industry, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is here to provide support to our communities. They are the region’s only independent health care system dedicated solely to the health and well-being of children. With facilities throughout the state, they provide kids and their families a wide range of care and support – everything from routine care for ear aches or sore throats to life saving advances and treatment options.
As such, our goal is to provide support for Children’s Hospital to assist with funding for cures of childhood diseases and to help children and parents cope with the pain, stress and worry caused by a serious diagnosis. Each year we continue to ask for your help, and this year was no exception.
Our Annual Kickin’ It with the Cows Run/Walk is in its 3rd year and over the last two years we’ve hosted nearly 3000 participants in downtown De Pere, WI and raise over $200,000 in in-kind and monetary contributions from over 50 community partners, many of whom are recognized on our event page.
In addition, 2018 was a huge milestone for the organizations as a whole, because on July 28 we held our 8th Annual Dairy Cares-Garden Party where we surpassed the $1 Million Dollars in monetary contributions for Children’s Hospital.
As we move forward, Dairy Cares is asking for your help. We need you on our team as one of our amazing sponsors, supporters, participants, or volunteer. Your support will accompany Dairy Cares in building the necessary resources to help Wisconsin’s children!
When we look at all we have accomplished over the last 8 years, we are humbled and deeply grateful for the commitment our supporters have made to changing the odds for children and families who face some very tough challenges.
Please take the time to review our sponsorship opportunities. Our various levels of support include a variety of ways to demonstrate your profound support and have a positive impact on children throughout our communities.
