90% of the Coppell Special Olympic's Yearly Budget comes from this event/fundraiser.
We NEED your help!

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 $54,200 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.

Why Get You In Shape started the 5k for Coppell Special Olympics 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 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 $54,200 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.
