2019 Mayor's Challenge
Get active and get out in the community this summer!
HOW IT WORKS
Mayor Dan Devine challenges West Allis residents to get moving and active this summer!
We've rounded up a list of seven summer events that offer something for every member of the family. Choose your 3 favorites, and get your passport stamped to show that you attended the event.
During the week of August 5 - 9, return your passport to West Allis Health Department, or stop by our special drop off event on Thursday, Aug. 8 at West Allis Farmers Market. Your completed passport will get you entered into a prize drawing for great fitness and wellness prizes!
- Anyone is welcome to join in the fun!
- You must get your passport stamped at each event you attend.
- You can attend more than 3 events, but each person will only be entered into the prize drawing once.
