About Coppell Special Olympic Teams
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 9 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 $82,000 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 10th 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 annual funding from this one event.
