Community Options To Host National 5K To Support People With Disabilities
PRINCETON, NJ – Valentine’s Day is a day of love. For those who LOVE to run, on Saturday, February 14, people across the country will participate in the seventh annual Cupid’s Chase 5K run, presented by Community Options, Inc.
Community Options is a national nonprofit organization that provides housing and employment support to people with disabilities. Every year, Community Options holds their annual 5K to raise money for the people they support, with all proceeds from the race going directly towards supporting people with disabilities in their local communities. Last year, Community Options raised over $200,000 nationwide.
This year’s 5K will take place in 27 cities from New York to Arizona. Community Options will host four new race locations this year. The new runs are located in Tucson, AZ, Charleston, SC, Cooper River Park, NJ and Trexlertown, PA.
Participants will receive an “Available” or “Unavailable” shirt to wear for the race in hopes of sparking a love connection.
For lovers of running, this is one of the first races of the running season around the country. And for those in search of LOVE, Cupid may just strike you with his arrow on one of the most romantic days of the year while you run the 5K.
