Cookie 5K for DonateGoodStuff.org (Virtual)

Wed June 17 - Tue June 30
Donate Good Stuff Cookie 5K

We postponed the Cookie 5k initially scheduled on May 30th to make space to react to what was happening in our neighborhoods after the murder of George Floyd on Memorial Day. The past weeks have brought renewed clarity to the many injustices people of color have faced for far too long. 
 
Black lives matter. 
 
As we navigate these times of change and reflection, we know that we can’t go 'back to normal'. 

The Cookie 5K is no different. We are grateful for your support and want to honor the commitment you made to furthering our work. We are especially appreciative of that over the past weeks as we focused on connecting neighbors with resources needed after the destruction that closed many essential businesses. We invite you now to run with us not only in this 5k, but in a marathon to change failed systems, rebuild communities, and take meaningful and lasting action.

100% of profit from registrations goes to Donate Good Stuff, a nonprofit that makes it easier for you to donate items and make an impact in the community and environment. Race proceeds will especially help this year as we continue to actively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, serving organizations that are in greater need now more than ever.

Prizes! 
The first place prize is a 6 month supply of Cookie Cart Cookies!  Finish and report your time before Noon to be eligible! 
Prizes will be drawn throughout the day from those who post their race photos and finish times any time on May 30th.

Cookies! 
Everyone will get delicious Cookie Cart cookies. 
We are again partnering with Cookie Cart because their cookies are awesome and their mission
to empower youth is even more awesome. More information to come - our hope is to have cookies available that you can pick up at their store in a social-distancing, safe way after the race.

Special Swag Donation
Since March, Donate Good Stuff has been tirelessly working to help respond to COVID-19.
Mask donations have been a big part of this. We expanded across the US and across medical
facilities and other organizations to connect people with donations to those who are on the front
lines and at risk. We have helped facilitate thousands of donations. 
To continue our commitment to helping  those in our communities most affected by COVID-19,
Instead of receiving yet another T-shirt, we will be donating the very special gift of a mask in your name to organizations in need.

Donation Partners
Because making an impact in our community is in our DNA, we normally collect donation items for other local charity partners at the race. This year, COVID-19 changed everything.  We ask you instead visit DonateGoodStuff.org to see how you can help right now.

THE RACE IS ON! 
SIGN UP......LACE UP....JUST DON’T SHOW UP
AND WE'LL ALL RUN ALONE TOGETHER ON SATURDAY, MAY 30.
