A “Race for the Rest of Us” on Saturday, August 17 from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM at Lincoln Park in Manitowoc. A “fun run” to benefit Lakeshore CAP’s programs throughout our communities!


The, um, race may be the most grueling of your life. This tongue-in-cheek event is geared to the classic underachiever, who wants to participate in an, um, athletic competition and train for it by sleeping in late, eating donuts and drinking beer. You’ll receive a swag bag with a smug oval magnet for your car, a one-of-a-kind event t-shirt, a participation medal – because we celebrate ALL abilities and underachievers − and bragging rights for participating in the punishing 546.8 yard/1640 feet event! 

AND, you’ll be raising money for a local cause! Join us for the grueling, um, race or the party afterwards. Food, beer and music will be available after the, um, race. The registration fee is $35.00 per person. But also bring cash for raffles along the way; spectators can purchase a ticket for the after-party separately. This is a FUNDRAISER after all!


The race will start at the Lincoln Park Field House and end at Cabin 1, which is up a treacherous hill that will leave your legs burning and your lungs on fire. There will be rest stations along the way and enthusiastic supporters to cheer you to the finish line. First Aid will be provided by spectators who may or may not have adequate training or a retired nurse, if my mom is willing.

VOLUNTEER! Point in Time Homeless Count July 24

VOLUNTEER! Point in Time Homeless Count July 24

   Volunteers Needed for Semi-Annual Point In Time Homeless Count!

A coalition of local agencies and volunteers will be conducting the Point In Time Homeless Count in Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee, & Sheboygan Counties over the night of Wednesday, July 24th. The focus of the count is to identify people who might be residing on the streets, in cars, campgrounds, under bridges or similar places. Services needed to help the homeless in our communities are a result of identifying those households. The information gathered is used at the state and federal levels to allocate resources for individuals and households requiring homelessness assistance.


2-3 hour shifts are available between 11 PM, Wednesday, July 24th and 6 AM, Thursday, July 25th. Right click and follow link on your preferred county Google Doc to sign up. Thank you so much!

Be Part of the “No Wrong Door” Solution

Lakeshore CoCIn addition, we are requesting assistance from the community to help us identify locations where suspected homeless people may be staying. If your business is aware of people that do not have shelter or you are a concerned citizen who might have spotted someone you suspect is homeless, please contact us. We can offer assistance and referrals for shelter. Please let us know prior to the Count If you are aware of locations in the community (parked car, parks, etc.) where people are staying so we can find these vulnerable people and offer them services.

People experiencing or at risk of homelessness may find housing and get connected to community-based resources through Coordinated Entry. In most counties in Wisconsin, you can get help at agencies that assist homeless people and/or people in poverty. Lakeshore CAP, covering 4 counties, is among those agencies displaying the “No Wrong Door” welcome poster.

Donate Locally to Help the Homeless!

Lakeshore CAP’s Supportive Housing Program in Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Door & Kewaunee Counties has case managers who assist eligible homeless individuals and households — or those at risk of becoming homeless — maintain housing and work towards self-sufficiency. While we receive HUD grant monies, we also rely on private and fund-raiser donations to further our goals in the communities we serve. Therefore, DONATE on this site to help Lakeshore CAP combat homelessness and give our fellow citizens a hand up. Thank you!
