For those looking to meet someone the weekend before Valentine's Day, runners will be given a Cupid's Chase T-Shirt listing their relationship status as either "available" or "unavailable."
Although it is a 5K run, participants of all age groups are welcome to participate, whether it is a competitor's speed, a light jog, or even a simple walk.
This will be the first time Lubbock hosts a Cupid's Chase 5K. The event is put on by Community Options, a nationally based non-profit aimed at serving thousands with both intellectual and developmental disabilities across 11 states - Arizona, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.
All proceeds from the event will go to provide housing and employment support to individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Over the course of the past three years, the organization has been able to raise $700,000 toward its cause.
