A night of celebrating often feels even better if it's been earned by a day of working for a great cause. Participating in one of Milwaukee's many summer runs, walks and bike rides for charity is an easy way to get fit, get outside and get money for some worthy organizations all at the same time. Many of these events will lead you right to the lakefront festival du jour, while others take participants off the beaten trail to enjoy the scenery outside the city.
