Register now for MKE Vaultfest 2016 – July 23, 2016!

Same great place, bigger competition field, bigger elite competition and a bigger fund raising goal!  Stay tuned for more information!

The Milwaukee Vaultfest is a pole vault competition on July 23, 2016 along the shore of Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee!  This competition will include amateur athletes of all ages and elite athletes competing to raise funds to benefit the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.

In our first year of partnering with the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation, GetVertical Pole Vault smashed their goal of donating $6,000 by donating over $10,000!  You can help GVPV reach the 2016 goal of $12,000 in several ways:

  • Each athlete will be asked to set a goal of raising $65 in the fight against cancer
  • An on-line auction prior to the event
  • A raffle drawing at the event
  • Continue our tradition of fourth attempts
  • Individual and corporate sponsorships

All donations are tax deductible.

The day will start with check-in at 8am and amateur competition tentatively running from 9:15am until 6pm. The elite competition will then run from about 4:30pm until 6:00 pm.

The event will bring ~100 amateur athletes and their friends and families from across the Midwest. In addition, we are excited to offer an elite competition featuring many top vaulters from the country.  At least $5,000 in prize money will be distributed for the elite competition this year. This event will be a great athletic event in Milwaukee for both athletes and spectators!
