How does the run work?

This is not a timed run/walk. The event is meant for people to have a good time while helping to raise money for individuals with disabilities.

What should I bring?

Bring water if you like, but hot chocolate and water will be provided at the end of the run. Remember to wear your best ugly sweater, sport that crazy hairstyle, and bring your over-the-top seasonal cheer!

Do I receive anything with my registration?

Each race registrant will receive an Ugly Sweater special gift. Pick up your gift and registration packet at the fun run finish.

What happens in the event of inclement weather?

The race goes on! This is Wisconsin– we don’t let a little stormy weather dampen our spirit. There will be no refunds for the Fun Run. Your contribution supports the People Can’t Wait Fund.

Where do the proceeds go?

The People Can’t Wait Fund helps Riverfront participants who face unexpected lapses in services when program funding changes abruptly. Without the services they depend on, participants experience dramatic, negative changes in their lives. The People Can’t Wait Fund provides resources to ensure services continue to provide participants with stability during times of funding transition.

Will there be any contests?

There will be an Ugly Sweater Contest! Wear the ugliest sweater you can find – which may be in the back of your closet. You may wish to increase your chances of winning by adding fun hair or colorful socks. Awards will be given to the Ugliest Sweater in three different categories: youth, individual, and team/family.
