Battle of the Badges, founded in 2012, was started as a charity softball game between the Middleton Police Department and the Middleton Fire District. In 2014, a charity 5K fun run/walk was added, which is run prior to the softball game. In addition to having a fun, family-friendly event to bring the community and their emergency responders together, the main purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds to assist local families affected by childhood diseases.
We partner with UW Health and the American Family Childrens Hospital to select a child and family in need and all funds raised by the event go directly to the child and family.
