CO-OP FEED YOUR NEIGHBOR 5K

PRIZES

Top overall female and male will win a $100 Co-op gift card! Top male and female of each age category will be a bread winner! Yes you will literally win a loaf of bread shaped as either a turtle or a rabbit. (It's just a fun way to reward our runners!) Additionally, every participant will be entered for door prizes.  

Not a runner? Alternatively, you can help and not have to participate in the race. This year our goal is to have 200 people donate $10 each! Donations go directly to Good Samaritan and can be done online. (link coming soon.)
