On Saturday, June 22nd, Get You In Shape is hosting the 10th Annual Coppell 5K benefiting Coppell Special Olympics. It is a community event with a 1-mile fun run, a timed 5K Race and a virtual option as well. Get You In Shape have partnered with the City of Coppell for the third consecutive year to kick off "Celebrate Coppell" and the other July 4th festivities with the run.


For the past 9 years, the Coppell 5K has raised over $82,000 in support of our Coppell team. We receive over 90% of our funding from this one event.  This financial support enables our athletes to receive letter jackets at our annual Special Olympics Banquet.  Funds raised pay for athlete uniforms, practice facility rental, transportation to events, entry fees for state competitions, letter jackets for high school athletes and our annual awards banquet as well as many other needs.
