Making A Difference

RTS recognizes and celebrates effort, hard work and commitment from kids and families!

JJ Watt actually fundraised with Raising The Steaks while attending Pewaukee High School. Ron Dayne is a great friend of Raising The Steaks and our partners at BadgerMax! Melvin Gordon is a young man that we know through our coaching network.

Kids and families have had the opportunity to meet, shake hands, ask questions, take pictures with and get autographs from these fine men. Keep an eye out for our 2016 special guest!!


Raising the Steaks Support Our Troops Program:

Your donation for Supporting the Troops will send handheld snacks, wet wipes and new socks to our brave soldiers. Let’s show our brave men and women how much we care about their dedication to our safety and freedom.

jonathan-greaney“On behalf of Charlie Company 1-68 AR, we would like to say, “Thank you!” We received a care package from Raising The Steaks and really appreciate the time and effort put in to assembling the care package. Apart from my Soldiers eating all the candy and food in a matter of minutes, everyone really loved the toiletries you sent. We have your picture up in the company area, and the Soldiers are passing around the reading material while they’re on duty. Thank you for your support and thinking of the little things that most people take for granted.

I also attached a picture of us from our training the other day. Charlie Company, “Cold Steel,” is a tank company, and we operate on the M1A2 Abrams. In the picture, you can see us conducting maneuver training on tanks that we have on deployment. We’ll get some more pictures out from the company during our deployment.”

God bless!

Very respectfully,

Jonathan R. Greaney

Raising the Steaks Cancer Programs:

joey-pickettAt age 9, Joey was diagnosed with a number of brain tumors. His father, Jim, and I graduated high school together in 1986 in Crivitz. Jim let me know about Joey in November of 2014. My first reaction was sadness, and my heart went out to his family. I tried to determine what RTS could do for Joey and his family. We reached out to all the coaches attending the Cudahy Coaches Clinic in January 2015. We put out a collection bowl, and the fantastic coaches responded by donating $1,240 to the Pickett Family. I was able to drive the fish bowl to Joeyʼs house three hours away and watch him count the money. I am happy to report Joey just received great news, and his prognosis is great. God Bless this young man for his courage and love!

Breast cancer awareness is very near and dear to RTS. Our mission is to bring forth more awareness about this dreadful disease. This past year we had a competition at the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade levels throughout Wisconsin for our cookie dough fundraiser. The kids responded big time. We also offered breast cancer awareness jerseys to kids selling over 50 boxes of dough to honor their moms, sisters, aunts and grandmothers.  We had over 300 kids earn these jerseys. Our commitment to women will never waiver. They make our world a better place, and we need all of them to help us through life! We have also created a special fund to donate directly to women in the RTS family network to ensure the dollars go where needed. Please help us support breast cancer awareness, and please enjoy our Pretty in Pink Cookie Dough. Thank you!
