Past Events

2011

Another fabulous HEADRUSH event! This year we were blessed with excellent autumn weather and the smell of pulled pork. Thanks to all who came to Blue Mound for a great day!

2010

A mellow HEADRUSH event this year due to many circumstances. Regardless, it was an outstanding event that was attended by a couple hundred people. There was amazing face painting, on-site screen printing and of course, those incredible balloon creations!

2009

We took a year off!

2008

Our biggest event to date. Over 600 people attended and we raised over $95,000. The weather was fall-tastic, and all in all it was an outstanding day with nature hikes, a mountain bike ride, yoga, the health fair, kids' activities, Funny Faces balloons, live entertainment, a delish lunch... what an incredible day!

2007

What a fab day! Nearly 500 people attended and it was a beautifully sunny (and crisp!) fall day in Southern Wisconsin. The entertainment was rockin' and kid activities were constantly bustling. So fun!

2006

Despite a little rain and chilly weather, another fun event was had! About 300 people attended at Blue Mound State Park, with the Naturalist-led hike being the favorite must-do activity of the day. Go HEADRUSH!

2005

HEADRUSH 2005 was also a grand success! The weather was beautiful and over 300 people came to enjoy Governor Dodge State Park, the fabulous entertainment, and the health fair. In '05, HEADRUSH once again raised over $50,000 for brain tumor research and education!

2004

The inaugural HEADRUSH event took place on October 2nd, 2004, at Governor Dodge State Park in Dodgeville, WI... it was a smashing success! We exceeded our goals, expectations, and hopes in every capacity. (especially considering it was our first year!) We were thoroughly impressed by the healthy turn out, the unconditional support, and the funds we raised for brain tumor research and cancer community centers. Over 300 people attended HEADRUSH 2004 and we raised over $50,000!
