13th Annual Coppell 5K For The Coppell Special Olympic Teams.

Get You In Shape has teamed up with the City of Coppell to host the 13th Annual Coppell 5K benefiting Special Olympics Teams On Saturday, June 25th. This event is in conjunction with Celebrate Coppell to celebrate Independence Day in a big way.  

If you can’t make it that day, you can make a donation or sign up for the  virtual 5K Race and it can  be run on any day of your choosing.

For the past 12 years, the Coppell 5K has raised over $110,000 in support of our local Coppell Special Olympic Athletes. Our goal for the 13th 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 Olympic Teams 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.
