Cupid's Chase 5K

Community Options will host its 12th annual Cupid’s Chase 5K event in support of people with disabilities. This year the race in Las Cruces will be held at Old Mesilla Plaza. All funds raised will be utilized to support people with disabilities in the Las Cruces region and El Paso regions. The race in Las Cruces will be one of 31 Cupid’s Chase races taking place on Feb. 8 across nine states. Last year, Community Options netted over $100,000 with 6,000 runners in attendance across the country. Each runner will receive a shirt that says “Available” or “Unavailable” in spirit of the Valentine’s Day theme.
