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 14 to get a spiffy event t-shirt!

3. With support from local businesses, every participant has a chance to win a prize after they get their cupcake!

If you have a local business and are interested in providing raffle prizes,  email cusr@champaignparks.org for more information.

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.
