2019 Walk for Children

2019 Walk for Children

Join us for the 30th annual Walk for Children at Next Door on Saturday, May 18, 2019.

The Walk is Next Door’s largest community event of the year and aims to raise awareness and funds for the critical early childhood education programs we offer to families in Milwaukee’s central city.

We welcome Green Bay Packers Defensive Lineman Kenny Clark as our 2019 Walk Leader. #97 will lead the crowd on a one-mile route beginning at our 29th Street campus – and then stick around for post-Walk entertainment and visit with fans.

We also welcome back the Harley-Davidson Motor Company as our Presenting Sponsor. The company and its employees have been huge supporters of Next Door, having served as the Presenting Sponsor of the Walk since it began in 1989. This year, Harley-Davidson marks a major milestone – surpassing the $1 million mark in support of the Walk over the past three decades! We look forward to honoring Harley-Davidson and its employees at the event.

Following the Walk, guests will enjoy a variety of family-friendly activities, live music, lunch, and a visit to our Books for Kids Mobile Library for free books.

  • Betty Brinn Children’s Museum
  • Harley-Davidson Trike Track
