5 ways to win at CUSR Cupcake 5K

Champaign-Urbana Special Recreation is a joint program between Champaign & Urbana Park Districts to provide quality recreation programs and services for Champaign-Urbana residents with disabilities.   CUSR Cupcake 5K is a philanthropic event that benefits the CUSR Scholarship Fund.

Here are 5 ways you can win at CUSR Cupcake 5K:

1. It doesn’t matter if you’re made of pure speed or have the pace of a sloth, everyone gets a cupcake!

2. CUSR Cupcake 5K has some pretty sweet race swag. All participants will receive a cupcake themed medal and register by October 18 to get this spiffy event t-shirt!

If you miss the t-shirt deadline, no worries!  We will have them on-site the day of the race for $10 each.

3. With support from local businesses, every participant has a chance to win a prize after they get their cupcake! A prize from any of these businesses is 100% a win and the list is STILL growing:

Black Dog

Brainstorm Escapes

Krannert Center of Performing Arts

Jarling’s Custard Cup

Urbana Acupuncture

4. Does your kiddo want to race, but 3.2 miles is too much running, walking, or rolling? CUSR also has a race just for them – CUSR Cupcake 100m Dash.  After the Cupcake 5K has concluded, kids 10 years-old or younger can participate.  Everyone gets a ribbon and, of course, a cupcake!

5. Ultimately, the most important win of this philanthropic event goes to the CUSR participants! All proceeds of the CUSR Cupcake 5K & 100m Dash benefit the CUSR Scholarship Fund. For some CUSR participants, the CUSR Scholarship Program is the only way they can have a safe place to go after school, compete on a sports team, or simply socialize with friends.

By registering for CUSR Cupcake 5K/100m Dash, you are helping make C-U a more inclusive community for individuals with disabilities.
