The goal was simple: bring the Onalaska community together for a memory-filled weekend with NO admission fees.
Join Verve at the Glow in the Deke Run/Walk on Saturday, September 15 at Maple Grove Venues (W4142 CTH B in West Salem) near La Crosse. All proceeds from the race benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse.
Every $20 raised by the race, which was organized in memory of avid youth supporter and BGC staff member Derrick “Deke” Kroll, covers a child’s entire BGC membership fee for one year.
- 5:00-7:30 p.m. Free Family Festival with bounce houses, face painting, games and more
- 6:30 p.m. Blue Moon 1K ($25/person) with four beer tastings (21+)
