In the Community

The PaceSetters of the Fox Cities often goes unrecognized in the community even though the club is extremely active year round in getting the Fox Cities community more active and in promoting better health through club programs, events and activities.  In addition, the club contributes monetary gifts to other “like-minded” nonprofits and promotes member volunteerism to other organizations, nonprofits and charities.  Below are just some examples of how the PaceSetters give back to our community.  We are proud of the club’s altruistic reputation and even more proud of the membership for caring about the health of the citizens of the Fox Cities Wisconsin.  As a service to the community, the club contracts to provide race services.  These services range from renting equipment to expert support personnel.  The club provides services to over 30 events during the year ranging from 5Ks to marathons and ultramarathons.  These events are made possible by the help of member volunteers.
