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. To learn more about your local Coppell Special Olympics Teams and the sports they participate in, please visit www.coppellso.org.

Why Get You In Shape started the 5K for Coppell Special Olympics Teams in 2010:

Brad and Cynthia Linder own Get You In Shape, a Coppell health and fitness company. Cynthia Linder, was a Special Education teach for Coppell Middle School East in 2010. She also was the Coppell Special Olympics Basketball coach. When learning that funds for basic stuff like basketballs and uniforms, Brad and Cynthia decided to host a 5k to help raise funds for the student-athletes. Brad and Cynthia both have taught Special Education. What was a quick thought to help allow the Coppell Special Olympics has become an incredible community event since 2010.

For the past 9 years, the Get You In Shape Coppell 5K has been supporting our local Coppell Special Olympics Athletes.
