What is the Mission: The mission of Special Olympics Texas is to provide year round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic type sports.
For the past 7 years, the Get You In Shape Coppell 5K has been supporting our local Coppell Special Olympics Athletes. Get You In Shape, a Coppell based fitness company, has donated over $49,000 to support their various sports such as bowling, soccer, aquatics, track and field, basketball, cheerleading, volleyball and bocce ball. Each of these events requires rental fees, uniforms, supplies and travel expenses that reoccur annually. The support and sponsorship for the local community has been outstanding. 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 that this great organization needs. Coppell Special Olympics receives 90% of their funding from this one event.
You can run the 5k with us on July 1st or sign up as a "Virtual 5k" and run when and where you want.
Support the Coppell Special Olympics by becoming a Sponsor while promoting your business :)
You can just make a donation (small or large) or you can choose to sponsor an athlete for the entire year.
We will need volunteers to make this a success. Please contact us below and let us know you want to help with the 5k.
When: July 1st or any day you choose to run virtually.
Time: 2 Options:
1. Details coming but start time for the 5k will be 8am
2. Anytime. The idea of this event is that it's a fundraiser for Coppell Special Olympics. So you can do a virtual 5k

If you are doing the Virtual 5k, you will choose your own 5k route and do it anytime.
