MADISON (WKOW) -- A 5K run and walk this weekend hosted by Madison-based ROUGH Sportswear will benefit Porchlight Homeless Shelter.

The event is Sunday, April 10 starting at 10:00 a.m. The race begins at the Porter Boat House and goes through the UW Campus. You can register here for $25. Registration includes a ROUGH 5K Run t-shirt, a medal and other gear. 

Porchlight's mission is to reduce homelessness by providing housing and support services that empower people and program participants to reshape and rebuild their lives. This event will help fund that, but also bring awareness. 

ROUGH Sportswear will also match donations made to its ROUGH Foundation to support Porchlight and contribute $1 for every new "like" on the company's Facebook page. ROUGH Sportswear says giving back to the community is part of its mission, "Reach Out U Give Help."
