Men’s Basketball to Participate in 13th Annual Mel’s Run

MEQUON, Wis. - Concordia University Wisconsin's men's basketball program will participate in the 13th Annual Mel's Run this Saturday, Sept. 24, in Cedarburg, Wis. The 5K family fun run/walk begins at 9 a.m. and will be followed by a pig roast, hole-in-one golf contest, music, silent auction and raffles.

Mel's Run began in 1999 when Blaine Bergmann lost his sister to cancer. The event decided to raise money for Blaine's niece, a Special Olympian. Ozaukee County Special Olympics was the recipient of $300 the first year and since then Mel's Pig Roast, Inc. has donated $206,550 to local charities.

Head coach Shawn Cassidy invites everyone to join his program in supporting this great event. "Every year we participate in a number of local community activities and we are excited to contribute to Mel's Run because this event supports so many local Ozaukee County charities."
