Proceeds will benefit the University of Wisconsin Cancer Carbone Center for cancer research in Madison, WI in honor of Peggy "Mama Goose" Giesfeldt, where she received much of her treatment during a seven-and-a-half year battle with sarcoma.
Peggy's son Matthew founded the memorial 5k run/walk in 2009 to help raise funds for cancer research and let her spirit live on. The nickname "Goose" is a play on their last name. Pictured above right: Matt and his wife Kari
