Badger Challenge returns to raise money for cancer research

MADISON, Wis. — UW’s annual Badger Challenge returned Sunday. The event helps raise money to fight cancer.

Festivities kicked off at the American Family Insurance headquarters and participants had many ways to get involved. The were courses to walk, run or ride through with a variety of different lengths.

“I started doing this event in its annual year 2016 in memory of my mom who I lost to cancer,” Melissa Carr said. “It’s been such a meaningful event all these years.”

Money raised from the event goes towards cancer treatment at the UW Carbone Cancer Center.
