Denmark, WI (November 17, 2016) - The Denmark School District and Brown County Library have been awarded the “Standing Up for Rural Wisconsin Award” for their cooperative effort to install fiber and increase bandwidth for both institutions. The award, presented annually by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, honors projects that demonstrate the great potential and collaborative spirit of rural Wisconsin.

This past summer the Denmark School District and Brown County Library worked with Nsight Telservices to overcome its slow internet challenges. With its state-of-the-art fiber network in proximity of the school, Nsight was able to engineer a custom solution to economically bring high-bandwidth service to the school and the library. The institutions now have 1 GBPS service, five times faster than its previous solution and at a cheaper price than before.

 

The impact of the significantly faster speeds is being felt throughout the district. The schools are one-to-one, with each student having access to an internet-connected computing device. Gigabit service means all classrooms can connect as needed, without worrying about slow speeds or a crowded connection. It’s allowing for the expanded use of Google Apps for Education.

“Our schools used to struggle with capacity and a poor connection. The expanded bandwidth has allowed us to increase the hands-on use of technology in the classroom district wide and has given our teachers more access to use Google Classroom and other online applications,” said Tony Klaubauf, district administrator at the Denmark School District.

Library patrons are also benefiting with faster speeds allowing them to search and apply for jobs, connect with grandchildren or take online courses This project is a shining example of how public entities and private businesses can work together to improve our communities. Having fiber-fed internet, at this capacity, is unique, especially in a rural school district. This technology not only meets our current needs, but positions us for future growth and technology demands,” said Klaubauf. The award was presented on November 9 by Wisconsin State Superintendent Tony Evers. This project was among eight in the state to receive the honor.

 

 

Green Bay, WI (November 16, 2016) – The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon will add Special Olympics Wisconsin Unified Sports Program to its list of nonprofit partners for the next three years. Special Olympics Wisconsin Unified Sports Program joins ASPIRO and the Greater Green Bay YMCA Full Circle Program as the recipients of funds raised by the 18th annual Cellcom Green Bay Marathon, which will take place May 19-21, 2017.

Special Olympics empowers individuals with intellectual disabilities to become accepted and valued members of their communities, using sports as the catalyst as well as programming around health and education. Funds from the marathon will benefit the Unified Sports program through Special Olympics Wisconsin. Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Special Olympics Unified Sports combines individuals with intellectual disabilities (athletes) and individuals without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams. The program was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.

“Special Olympics Wisconsin is honored to have been selected as the charity partner for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. Sports are a powerful tool for building connections and increasing inclusion and Unified Sports brings youth and community members together in a unique and powerful way. The foundation of Unified Sports is the principal of meaningful involvement, where every player is given an opportunity to contribute to the success of his or her team through their unique skills and qualities. We are ultimately engaging communities to overcome a culture of exclusion,” said Matt Harper, Regional Director of Development, Special Olympics Wisconsin.

The charity partners for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon operate on three-year terms, with one new charity added each year and one exiting charity each year. The selected non-profit organizations become a strong member of the operational team, comprised primarily of volunteers, to put on this event.

“We are excited to have Special Olympics Wisconsin on board for the next three years. The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon aims to promote a year-round active lifestyle and foster community spirit, and Special Olympics’ focus on inclusion athletics embodies this,” said Brighid Riordan, board president of the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. “We are proud to offer our support to their Unified Sports program as it works to build bonds and break down barriers.”  

The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon aims to support a community need when selecting a charity partner and chooses a charity partner that can effectively utilize the marathon’s platform. In 2016, the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon donated $160,000 to its three charity partners. Over the past 17 years, the non-profit event has generated over $1.2 million in proceeds for local non-profits.

To pledge to run for Special Olympics Wisconsin Unified Sports Program or another charity partner, runners can sign-up for the Run for a Reason program, which allows participants to raise funds for the marathon’s partners in exchange for a free entry into the marathon or half marathon. Participants must raise $300 to receive their free entry and all funds go directly to the charities. For more information and to register visit www.cellcomgreenbaymarathon.com.
