The Next Door Walk for Children has become a community tradition, increasing awareness of Next Door and bringing together central city neighbors and friends throughout Greater Milwaukee.
This year, Next Door pivoted to a virtual format which allowed employees from around the globe to Walk a Mile for a Child. Between May 18 – 22 113 employees, friends and family members walked 1,275 miles. Each mile was matched $10 by the Harley-Davidson Foundation. Employees also fundraised an additional $2,985.
Next Door is a multi-cultural organization dedicated to providing at-risk children and their families with the tools they need to achieve success and reach their full potential. Their mission is to support the intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional development of children so they become self-sufficient, contributing members of the community through effective, inclusive community programs. Their programs are based on the premise that education is the foundation of success and that learning is a lifelong endeavor.
