The purpose of the Brain Freezer 5K is to raise funds for the Vermont based non-profit, People Helping People Global. PHPG is an organization that provides micro-loans to individuals living on less than US$2 per day. The loans are used by their clients to start small businesses in order to generate their own income instead of having to rely on international aid. If you would like to support the cause, please consider providing a tax-deductible contribution to PHPG by clicking on the link below.
