Operation Oatmeal will again be running, walking and crawling in the Door County Half Marathon & 5K at Peninsula State Park on Saturday, May 4 to raise money for The Clearing.

Last year, you helped CRUSH our fund-raising goal of $10,000 by donating over $12,000 for the Clearing scholarship fund! This year, Operation Oatmeal is also committed to raising $10,000! These funds will be used for several upcoming landscape-related projects including the renovation of the Players Green (outdoor amphitheater), visitor center interpretive trail signage and road signage. Yup, it’s a lofty goal, but with your help Operation Oatmeal will make The Clearing a better place for both our visitors and our students!

In the past six years, YOU have helped the team raise an incredible $60,000! We hope you will help us meet our fundraising goal by making a donation or pledge online or by giving us a call today!

Operation Oatmeal will plow through whatever old man winter decides to throw at Door County, but your donations and pledges help us run and walk a little faster and feel a little warmer.

Thanks again for your continued support of life-long learning and creativity at The Clearing!

Did You Know? We don’t need big donations to meet our goal, but every donation matters! Think about pledging $2 or $3 dollars per mile. (A half marathon is 13.1 miles.) Last year, 70% of Team Forge donations and pledges were only $2 or $3 per mile. Did we already mention that every donation matters?! Donate or Pledge Today!

Did You Also Know? A $10,000 addition to The Clearing’s General Scholarship fund by Operation Oatmeal will generate approximately one (plus a little more) permanent Summer Program scholarship?

And Remember…The Clearing is a not-for-profit corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to The Clearing are tax-deductible.

p.s. Interested in joining Operation Oatmeal? We’d love to have you running, walking or cheering by our side on May 4th! Get on board by giving Erik a call at The Clearing.
