It’s that time of year! Wendy’s® annual Frosty® 5K Run for Adoption presented by Pure Life® is BACK.

Last year, participants from around the world joined our virtual Frosty 5K race, raising more than $200,000 for our charity of choice, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®. We’re thrilled to continue the tradition of raising funds and awareness for the Foundation’s mission to find permanent, loving homes for children waiting in foster care with our 2023 Virtual Frosty 5K Run for Adoption Race.

2023 Virtual Frosty 5K Run for Adoption Race Details:

  • WHAT: Register now for $25 per person, and run or walk 3.1 miles to benefit the Foundation’s mission focused on foster care adoption.
  • WHERE & WHEN: Run or walk anywhere and anytime between September 1 – 17, 2023.
  • WHY: Funds raised* during the Frosty 5K will support the continued expansion of the Foundation’s signature programs, including National Adoption Day, Adoption-Friendly Workplace and Wendy’s Wonderful Kids®.
  • MORE FROSTY 5K FUN: Purchase a 2023 Frosty 5K t-shirt with your registration for an additional $10, which will be mailed to ordering participants**. Simply choose the Virtual Participant & T-shirt option at registration. Include your furry friend in the Frosty 5K fun by purchasing a 2023 Frosty 5K dog bandana for $5 each.
