Get some exercise and a great view of the newly renovated Andrew Brown Park system all while supporting the Special Olympics at the 8th Annual Get You In Shape Coppell 5K and Fun Run! This year's event will begin at 8:00 am at Andrew Brown Park West, 363 N Denton Tap Rd, on July 1, kicking off Celebrate Coppell, the City's annual Independence Day celebration, as well as the grand re-opening of Andrew Brown Park East!
For the past seven years, Get You In Shape, a Coppell-based fitness company in partnership with the City of Coppell, has hosted the Coppell 5K and Fun Run benefiting Coppell Special Olympics. The Coppell Special Olympics receives 90 percent of its funding from this one event making community participation and support so important.
"The support and sponsorship for the local community has been outstanding," Brad Linder, Owner of Get You In Shape, said. "Our goal for the 8th Annual Get You in Shape Coppell 5K is to continue to rally around these athletes with special needs and provide the financial support this great organization needs."
There are several ways for members of the community to get involved and help Get You In Shape reach this year's $10,000 goal allowing Coppell Special Olympics to provide athletes with uniforms, equipment and practice space.
Go to Coppell5k.com to sign up, then lace up your running shoes and join us at the park on July 1! The entry fee is $35 and includes a t-shirt if you sign up before June 23. Walk up registrations on race day are also welcome.
Virtual – If you can't be there in person on July 1, sign up to participate virtually for $25 and complete your run when and where you are able.
Fun Run – Enjoy a slower paced stroll through the park with the Fun Run. The registration fee is $25 and children age 5 and under are free.
Make an additional donation alongside your run registration fee, make a stand alone donation or sponsor a Coppell Special Olympic athlete for one year at Coppell5K.com.
Get You In Shape needs volunteers on race day to help assemble and hand out race packets, assist with registrations, run water and food stations and monitor the race itself. If you're interested in volunteering, sign up at Coppell5K.com.
After supporting this great local organization and completing the 5K, stop by Andrew Brown Park East, 260 Parkway Blvd., for a full slate of family-friendly activities starting at 2:00 pm at Celebrate Coppell – Party in the Park. Enjoy the newly renovated park along with food, games, live music and performances, and the largest and best fireworks show in DFW! For more information, please visit CelebrateCoppell.com.
