Description

Like so many events during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Guilford Rotary has decided to hold our annual New Year's Day fundraiser as a virtual event.

Over the years, the Frosty 5K has become recognized for its community-wide appeal, attracting competitive runners as well as families and other social groups. Without the camaraderie and buzz of race day, asking entrants to complete a 5K or 2M walk in social isolation just wouldn't be the same.

So, for 2021 we are pleased to be hosting the Frosty 5 Day Challenge Event! Here's how it works:

Between Dec 28, 2020 and Jan 1, 2021, you will be able to complete as many miles as you like by running, jogging or walking as many times as you like. You can record each activity here on this website via the RESULT menu option. Ultimately, we're looking for individuals and teams (minimum of 2 participants) that log the most miles. You can participate anywhere in the world and track your progress online. Please upload photos of your efforts when you post your results!

The Frosty 5 Day Challenge is open to anyone who wants to take part in a great community event and show support for local programs Guilford Rotary benefits, including Warm the Children, our Scholarship Fund, and Homodeus Inc. -- a Guilford company developing a low-cost home test for Covid-19 (see below). While we hope next year at this time we'll all be running together again, we want you with us now in this difficult time of pandemic.

So, what are you waiting for? Are you willing to try the Frosty 5 Day Challenge?

Your participation at the Frosty 5K benefits local community programs. You can DONATE to help these and other community based programs:

 

Warm The Children is a non-profit organization providing new winter clothing for needy children on the shoreline. With community support, Rotary volunteers take families in need shopping for coats, boots, gloves and other apparel.

 

The Guilford Rotary Club Memorial Educational Fund, Inc. provides scholarships to people seeking educational financial aid for job training, community colleges and under graduate and graduate studies at colleges and universities. In 2020, we awarded a total of $24,000 in scholarships.
