Welcome

Here's to an active future in Portage County

To our supporters,

Active Portage County (APC), the organization that created activities like Walk Wisconsin, the Hard Rocks Hike, Moon Walk Wisconsin and many other events is disbanding. The pandemic and the loss of several key volunteers has had an effect, and we must admit that those tents, tables, and five-gallon water jugs have become a heavy load for our committee members. This does not mean, however, that our mission to keep central Wisconsin moving will end. Wellness-minded individuals and organizations from the community who supported Active Portage County's mission throughout the years will continue the legacy Active Portage County built. Active Portage County will live on and support the health and wellness of our community through the established Happy Trails fund at the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin. Please consider donating to the fund to help support future efforts.

We are hoping another organization that shares our goals will take over some of our events, and in the interim, we encourage you to watch StevensPointArea.com for activities and events in the area that will keep us running, paddling, cycling, and walking.

Thank you for your participation with APC over the past 17 years. Our work was only possible because of our participants, volunteers, and sponsors. We sincerely hope that our efforts have helped you live a healthier and more productive life.

We look forward to meeting you on the trails.
