9th Annual Coppell 5K

On Saturday, June 30th, Get You In Shape is hosting the 9th Annual Coppell 5K benefiting Special Olympics Teams of Coppell. It is a community event with a fun run, a timed 5K Race and a virtual option as well. We have partnered with the City of Coppell for the second consecutive year and this race is part of "Celebrate Coppell" and the July 4th festivites at Andy Brown Park.

For the past 8 years, the Coppell 5K has raised over $72,000 in support of our local Coppell Special Olympic Athletes. Our goal for the 9th 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.

Time: 8:00am Start Time

Location: Andy Brown Park West - 363 Denton Tap Rd. Coppell, TX 75019
