What is the Co-op 5k?

The Co-op 5k is a fun, family-friendly event held each May. It serves as a major fundraiser for the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF). Monies raised through the event support cooperative development nationwide. Trophies are given for the Fastest Team, Most Team Spirit, and Highest Fundraisers. 
Race Information
