Bike Run Walk

 

The Hank Aaron Trail is near the Milwaukee Mennonite Church. Named in honor of baseball legend Hank Aaron, this 12 mile trail provides a continuous connection between Milwaukee’s Miller Park Stadium and the Lake Michigan lakefront, as well as providing connections to famous Milwaukee landmarks such as the historic Ward Theatre on the grounds of the Historic Soldiers Home, the Wisconsin State Fair Park and the Pettit National Ice Center. Our hosts invite you to explore the trail in a bike/run/walk event before the conference, while raising funds for CDC’s Leadership Development Fund. All are welcome and encouraged to take part in this annual fundraiser event.
