10th Annual Coppell 5K For The Coppell Special Olympic Teams
On Saturday, June 22nd, Get You In Shape is hosting the 10th Annual Coppell 5K benefiting Special Olympics Teams of Coppell. It is a community event with a 1-mile fun run, a timed 5K Race and a virtual option as well. We have partnered with the City of Coppell for the third consecutive year and this race will kick off the "Celebrate Coppell" and the July 4th festivities.
For the past 9 years, the Coppell 5K has raised over $82,000 in support of our local Coppell Special Olympic Athletes. Our goal for the 10th Annual Coppell 5K is to continue to rally around these athletes with special needs and provide the financial support that this great organization needs. Coppell Special Olympics receives 90% of their funding from this one event. This financial support enables the athletes to receive letter jackets at their annual Special Olympics Banquet and provides banners and signage for traveling competitions. Annual needs also include uniforms, transportation, equipment and event fees.
The Coppell Special Olympics team is an organization dedicated to individuals with special needs. They offer opportunities for better health, fitness and confidence in a variety of programs. The mission of Special Olympics Texas is to provide year round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic type sports.
