Coppell, TX – The Coppell 5k run and 1 mile walk on May 8th at Andy Brown Park West was a huge success. Get You In Shape sponsored and helped raise $5,000 for the Coppell Special Olympic Teams. There were 160 runners for both the 5k and 1 mile walk. There were more than 200 in attendance to help cheer and volunteer at the event. Get You In Shape represented well with 22 boot camp participants completing the Coppell 5k. For many, it was their first 5k
A huge thanks to all the runners, participants, volunteers and everyone who made the event such a huge success.
Here are a few of the pictures from the Coppell 5k benefiting Coppell Special Olympics Teams.
