The 9th Annual Mama Goose Memorial 5k Run/Walk to benefit the UW Carbone Cancer Center will take place on August 5th, 2017 at Veterans Park in Verona, WI. It was founded in honor of Peggy Giesfeldt, who tragically lost her long battle to sarcoma in 2009.
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: Matt and Kari Giesfeldt with their 2 daughters, Orla and Meara.
