On April 28, 2018, over 160 associates from Great Lakes participated in the Crazylegs Classic in Madison. The race supports University of Wisconsin athletics and has drawn over 342,000 runners since its beginning in 1982. The event includes an 8K run and a 2-mile walk.
Named after former college and NFL gridiron star and University of Wisconsin Athletic Director Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch, the event begins at the State Capitol and finishes near the 50-yard line in Camp Randall Stadium. Those who participated in the fun wellness event enjoyed great weather this year.
