Champaign Park District hosting CUSR Cupcake 5K this weekend

Sunday, November 8th starting at 9 am, the Champaign Park District will be hosting a 5K Run, Roll, and Recreational Walk at Dodds Park.

To sign up, register at any CUSR or Champaign Park District facility or at the Park District website. It’s only $25 to register, and the proceeds go to a scholarship fund for individuals who need financial assistance to access CUSR (Champaign-Urbana Special Recreation) programs.

Perhaps most importantly — everyone that crosses the finish line will be rewarded with a cupcake. The top runners will also be eligible for prizes, but come on — all we really want is that sweet, sweet cupcake. Especially after running three miles.

More information can be found here, on CPD’s website. When you combine cupcakes and charity, what’s not to love?
