Trick Or Trot 5K Run/Walk a Success!

Despite a cool and breezy morning, nearly 500 people turned out for a fun Halloween-themed walk/run that also supported LGBTQ youth in Wisconsin schools.  Thank your for all your great energy and enthusiasm!  Special thanks to our many volunteers who braved the weather and helped create a great experience for everyone!
We want your feedback! Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback, which will help us keep making Trick or Trot a bigger and better event!
Thanks again to our major sponsors Habush Habush & Rottier, Wartmann Chandler Appraisals Associates, and Worth Personal Training.  Thanks to Media Sponsor Mix 105.1 and radio host Aaron Rogers for your event promotion and serving as co-Emcee along with Dane County Board Supervisor and WORT personality Carousel Bayrd. Thanks to all our additional fiscal, media, and in-kind sponsors (you can see them here.)
Thanks to Peter Kraus for coming out to meet everyone and to lead us all in a great pre-race warm up – probably our most successful yet! Check out Our Lives Magazine’s Facebook page for photos with Peter at our photo wall as well as from the race.
Special thanks to our three biggest fundraisers Peter Kraus, Ali Muldrow, and Jenny Pressman. Together they raised more than half of the $27,146 (and counting) made in pledge donations to support GSAFE’s work of helping LGBTQ+ youth thrive in Wisconsin schools. Thanks to everyone who reached out to friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors to ask them to support GSAFE’s work. You are true superheros, thank you.
Please note that Trick or Trot is not a timed race and race results are not available to post.  
Finally, if you were unable to attend and wish to pick up your race shirt/packet, please contact or call (608) 661-4141 to arrange a pick up time.  
See you next year!
