How it got started....

Battle of the Badges, founded in 2012, was started as a charity softball game between the Middleton Police Department and the Middleton Fire District. In addition to having a fun, family-friendly event to bring the community and their emergency responders together, the main purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds to assist families affected by childhood diseases.

We partner with agencies like UW Health and the American Family Childrens Hospital to select a child and family in need and all funds raised by the event go directly to the child and family affected by the disease. 

Donations to support the Greatest Need Fund will provide an immediate resource for American Family Children's Hospital administrators to support emerging needs.

Our mission is to bring the community together with their emergency responders to raise awareness and funds to assist local families affected by childhood disease.
