Full Circle Campaign History

Running Rebels Full Circle Campaign is a $4.1 million capital fundraising initiative designed to inspire a transformation of hearts, minds, and social and economic circumstances for young people living in Milwaukee.
As of June 2018, nearly $2.5 million has been raised. The Zilber Family Foundation made a $500,000 lead gift in November 2016 to support the purchase of the Capital Drive facility. They also committed a $500,000 matching grant to close the campaign.
To meet the $500,000 Zilber matching grant, support from other visionary donors is now essential. Please consider contributing to the campaign and helping to secure the future of Running Rebels and our ability to create meaningful change for youth and families in Milwaukee.

An EPIC Evening to Benefit RRCO

This inspirational event set for October 25, 2018 at the Italian Community Center will mark 38 years of Running Rebels offering guidance, love, and positive mentoring to young people in Milwaukee’s central city.

Become a Sponsor of our EPIC Evening

Your sponsorship will showcase your company’s good values provide unique marketing benefits, and help to achieve three critical community goals:

  • Prevention of violence in families, neighborhoods, and the Milwaukee community.
  • Reduction of incarceration rates among African American boys and men in Milwaukee.
  • Development of young people of character who are engaged and contributing citizens.

We seek corporate sponsors who share our belief that all young people are born with the seeds of success inside of them. To bloom, those seeds need to be watered and tended to by caring adults, a positive peer group, meaningful activities and goals that inspire!
