2015 Co-op 5K Cancelled, CDF Planning Virtual 5Ks


Inclement weather and flooding at Hains Point Park coupled with National Park Service permitting conflicts have resulted in the cancellation of the 2015 Co-op 5k.

However, the Cooperative Development Foundation is still celebrating Co-op Month by holding Virtual 5Ks at a number of sites over the next two weeks. During these events, Co-op 5K registrants can pick up race t-shirts, swag bags, sign the Team Jo Ann Banner and Notes to Jo Ann book, enjoy a snack and win prizes. Registrants will also have the opportunity to have their photo taken while wearing their Team Jo Ann race gear.
