The Cause

Lakeland Pantry

Please join us for the 11th Annual Bear Cupboard Run Saturday morning, June 27th on the scenic Bearskin Trail!  Your participation in the BCR will provide you with the opportunity to run one of the most beautiful trails in the Northwoods helping to support two great causes which benefit thousands of men, women, and youths.  Proceeds from the race will go to the Lakeland Pantry and Wisconsin Nordic Development Group (WNDG).


Lakeland Pantry, a 501(c) 3, has more than 2,400 families registered with 5,000+ people served monthly; children comprise 40% of this number. Sixteen thousand pounds of food are distributed weekly.  Clothing and books are also distributed.

The Firebird Foundation, Inc. is  a  non-profit  organization formed by a group of community members with a vested interest in improving facilities and programs at the Minocqua J1 schools. They secure tax deductible contributions and grants to fund programs and facilities outside the school budget while keeping within the MJ1 school mission.
