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.
