Winter in Upstate New York is tough enough when you have a home. But for the homeless, winter can mean life or death. Every dollar raised by the Freeze Out events provides shelter and services for people experiencing homelessness in Syracuse, Binghamton, and Auburn. Your participation and support for the Freeze Out helps us provide life-saving shelter throughout the winter and all year-round.
Although we cannot run together in-person – your participation and crowdfunding for Freeze Out 5K is critical to help the Rescue Mission fight homelessness this winter. Interested in registering and getting a Freeze Out winter hat? Follow the ‘Register Now!’ button at the bottom of this page!
Build away the winter blues! The Rescue Mission is holding our first annual Freeze Out Snowman Build. Gather the family and build a snow sculpture – snowman, snow-woman, snow house – show us how creative you can be! After, come in from the cold and enjoy s’mores indoors with our at-home s’mores kit!
COVID-19 has brought its challenges – but the Rescue Mission is committed to making sure we all have fun safely this winter as we put #loveinaction. Join us for our traditional (Virtual) Freeze Out 5K or get the family together and enter our Snowman Building Contest! Better yet, DO BOTH!
