Freeze for Food – A Big Success

A group of people stand in front of a Freeze for Food banner.
ODFR and RPCV organizers Kate Schachter, Kathleen Wannemacher, Jess Collins, Tricia Blanco, Jules Frazier, and Cassie Rademaeker celebrate a successful Freeze for Food event with weather that included an unexpected downpour, wind, mist, sunshine and even a rainbow.
Racers begin a run.

After a COVID year of running virtually, over 360 runners, joggers and walkers, accompanied by toddlers, dogs and cheering fans, turned out for a day of unusual weather and a successful fundraising event in Vilas Park, Madison.

For the sixth consecutive year, Freeze for Food Walk/Run sponsors and the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Madison dedicated race proceeds to Open Doors for Refugees. Participants themselves donated $5,000 in addition to their entry fees, to bring the total well over the record $10,000 raised in 2021. Thank you, RPCV-Madison, as well as the organizing team, volunteers, and generous sponsors. See you next year!
