Trick or Trot 5K Run/Walk

  • GSAFE Capital Square Madison, WI 53703 USA (map)

Celebrate Halloween and get in the spirit with our Trick or Trot 5K Walk/Run Oct 16th at the Capitol Square!

GSAFE hosts an annual fundraising event in the fall and this year we’ve decided to add a little extra magic. Our 5k for safe schools, formally the Walk/Run/Eat, has shape shifted into the Trick or Trot!

All participants receive a t-shirt, goodie bag and some halloween swag. Witches receive a purple shirt and a pointy witches hat, pumpkins receive an orange shirt and a green beanie, and black cats receive a black shirt and cat ears! There will be spooky music and candy trick or treat stations throughout the route.


There are two other ways to support the cause:

Become a superhero! Our superheroes have a long tradition of inspiring others to contribute to the mission of GSAFE by forming teams and raising funds. Bonus: Trick or Trot superheroes who raise at least $500 will receive a GSAFE hoodie to rock their superhero pride all year long and an outpouring of gratitude from the GSAFE community. Just select “Become a Fundraiser” when you register for the 5K.

Volunteer on the day of the event as a cheerleader, face painter or activity facilitator, court marshal, candy passer outer, or help us out with registration and other logistics. This is a great job for groups or organizations, so gather your crew and contact for more information. 

Tell your friends! Know someone who might be interested in supporting Trick or Trot? Share the Trick or Trot event on social media, and get your friends, classmates, and colleagues together to form a team. The more the merrier!

We are the ONLY organization in Wisconsin dedicated to supporting LGBTQ+ youth in schools.
