Honorary Chairdog, Lost Dog Titus
<< The Titus Trail Relay event for 2016 is now COMPLETE and no more donations are being accepted -- thanks to everyone for making 2016 our best year ever with over $60,000 raised for 10 charities! >>
Welcome back to a one of a kind charity event that is inspired by D. J. Rodrian's "Lost Dog Titus"
, who ran loose in Milwaukee from April 1 to April 26, 2011. Although Titus went to heaven, his legacy of inspiring the community lives on.
Titus Trail Relay for Charity
Saturday, June 25, 2016 - 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Finish Line / Hoyt Park, Picnic Area 1, at NOON
Fundraiser for 10 Charities / 10 Participants (Teams)
This is NOT a walk or fun run for the general public. There are only 10 participants (Teams)
. But you can still come out with or without your dog, support some great causes, and have a blast at the Finish Line Picnic
! Here's how it works:
- This is the 6th year of the event. 2010 was a one man, one dog (DJ & Titus) 16+ mile solo exploratory run down the Menomonee River, raising money and awareness for one charity. In 2011/12/13/14/15, the event was expanded to include 10 participants (Teams) and charities. See the Race History page for more details.
- In this event, the course has been divided into a 10 section relay, and 10 participants are invited to raise money for their own charities by joining DJ for a section of the course. Interested parties can apply using the "Enter a Team" link on this page. Each Team will furnish at least one person and one dog, to participate.
- Each Team will have their own custom web page on this site, featuring links, pictures, and videos to promote their cause. Online donations can be made directly to teams/charities using the "Donate to Team" link on this page. These donations are passed directly to the team's featured charity, net of credit card costs.
- There is a Finish Line Picnic starting at noon. Note: this is an RSVP Requested event which is limited to donors, sponsors, participants, charities, and their guests. It is an informal, family-style picnic, so we need to keep a handle on who, and how many, people are coming.
The Menomonee River beckons.

If you are serious about being one of the ten participants with a charity of your own, feel free to e-mail D. J. directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a grass-roots, home-made, old-fashioned, "do it yourself" effort to raise money for good causes. Whatever anyone's level of participation, is at their own risk. I'm not a lawyer, so please don't get one and sue me! All participants are considered my friends. DJR
