Elevate means to lift and inspire and that is all that we want to do! We organize numerous charity events each year for many different causes.  Our passion is driven by inspiring change.  We rally around those who want to fight for a cause and achieve something great.  


Our successes include:


  • 2013-
    • We successfully planned and hosted our very first charity fundraiser Dance Competition, The Power of Purple to remember two wonderful women, our good friends' grandmother and mother Linda Klug who fought Pancreatic Cancer and passed within a year of each other. 

  • 2016-
    • We hosted our fourth annual Power of Purple Dance Competition and raised just under $30,000.  
      In 2016 we expanded and created Elevate!​  We also hosted our 2nd annual Power of Purple 5K benefiting the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and Lisa's Light which benefited FMDSA in honor of our team member Melissa's mom, Lisa Wise who passed from an unexpected aneurysm caused by FMD.  We also hosted our first annual Rock the Burbs live music event benefiting the MACC Fund on New Years Eve. 


         2017-

                 Elevate hosted it's second Rock the Burbs - a very successful youth talent competition and an evening live                      music event benefiting the MACC Fund.  In 2017, Elevate helped raise almost $15,000 for the MACC Fund                        through our events and sponsors.  In October, our 5th annual Power of Purple Dance Competition took place                    with a great turnout and new venue at Carroll University.  And in November we held our 1st ever Race for                        your Reason 5K, which had roughly 200 participants and raised over $7,000 for 14 charities. 


         2018 -

                 Elevate hosted our 2nd Race for Your Reason called GLOstice in June of 2018!  This event included a 5K                          run/walk and post race concert which benefitted 4 important brain related charities: Alzheimers Association,                  Autism Society of SE WI, FMDSA and REDgen (youth mental health). Through this event we helped raise over                   $10,000 for over 20 different charities!  Rock the Burbs will once again take place in September where we                     will try to raise even more the MACC Fund while enjoying and awarding all the local talented youth and                           bringing the community together through our live music event, this year featuring a grammy nominated band                 along with amazing local acts!  And in November we will host our 6th Annual Power of Purple Dance                                 Competition.  This year we look to welcome even more dance teams from across the state to help join our                       efforts in raising money for Pancreatic Cancer!  Our event this year should help us reach over $100,000                         raised for PANCAN over the last 6 years, which is truly amazing!  


Everyday there are misfortunes and hardship.  Our goal is to help people everywhere that lose someone to some awful means and immediately want to do more for that cause.  Most might attend a 5k, a gala, a fundraiser or donate money to a charity of their choice.  Most though, don't think they can go ahead and plan it  but the Elevate team is here to help people do just that. There are people that want to see out a vision of an uplifting event - something that just makes people challenge themselves, spreads love and positivity or just makes people feel good and enjoy music and life.
