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

Last year, the Frosty 5K raised more than $215,000 for our signature cause, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®. Importantly, because of our virtual format, we were able to include more than 1,700 race participants from all around the world! 

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 2024 Virtual Frosty 5K Run for Adoption race. 

2024 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 August 9 – 25, 2024.  
  • 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 2024 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. And even include your furry friend in the Frosty 5K fun by purchasing a 2024 Frosty 5K dog bandana for $5 each.
