There will be a special Kids’ Fun Run/Dash with medals, face-painting and family
activities in the Discovery Garden starting at 9:00 a.m. until the run, walk and
roll begins at 10:00 a.m.
Need some inspiration? Visit https://www.waisman.wisc.edu/event/run-2018/ for a
training video with kids from the Waisman Early Childhood Program and read
stories about why people whirl with us. You can also check out the design of
this year’s t-shirt.
You make a difference!
The Waisman Whirl is one of the ways the Friends of the Waisman Center raises
awareness and funds for the Waisman Center and support for the center’s areas of
greatest need and programs such as the Day with the Experts series, the Wiley
Seminar series, mini-grants to staff and students, and so much more.
Can’t be here in person…be a virtual whirler!
If you are unable to join us in person, consider registering as a virtual
participant. We will send you a t-shirt and highlights from the event.
Another wonderful way to raise funds and awareness for the Waisman Center is
through pledges. Pledge forms are available online.
Spread the word!
Please share this information with your family, friends and colleagues through email and social media.
Be a volunteer!
We need volunteers to help with set-up, registration, road crossings, kids’ activities and clean-up.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Waisman Whirl!
