Event description
Join BadgersVote in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 26th Amendment by participating in our 2.6mile fun run/walk/roll.

About this event

What are we celebrating? The 26th amendment lowered the voting age from 21 to 18, 50 years ago this month! This allowed young people to make their voices heard in our democracy.

How are we celebrating? We have been celebrating all month long on our social media channels @BadgersVote. Now you can sign up here to participate in this virtual event. You complete a walk/run/roll or a combination of your choice of 2.6 miles. You do this on your own time with whoever you want! Not interested in doing this outdoors you can do it from a gym or a home treadmill.

Suggested 2.6 Mile Course: Looking for a great spot and easy way to know you have completed the 2.6 miles? Start at the Limnology building behind College Library at the start of Lakeshore path. Run to the parking circle connected to Lot 60 just past the Near West Fields/Marching Band Field. Turn around and run back to Limnology!

Tag Us on Social Media! Take a picture of you participating in this event. This can be of you, your friends/family, the view, or screenshot even the route you completed. Tag us on social media @badgersvote with the hashtags #BadgersVote and #26thamendment
