This 5K/10K run and walk is organized by the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPVC) of Wisconsin – Madison. The event welcomes not only runners, but also families, strollers, dogs on leashes, and all Wisconsinites intrepid enough to enjoy getting out on a cold winter’s day.

Generous support from community sponsors means that 100% of Freeze for Food registration fees goes to Open Doors to support food security and relief efforts for refugee families. RPCV is also hosting a food drive for the Goodman Community Center’s Fritz Food Pantry on the day of the race.
