Celebrate 80 years of cooperation – CDF’s annual Co-op 5k is back!


Lace up your sneakers and stretch for the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF)’s annual Co-op 5k to support and celebrate CDF’s 80 years of serving the cooperative community. Participate virtually anytime between April 20 and May 3 or join in person in Washington, DC at Hains Point, East Potomac Park on May 4, 2024. Run, walk or stroll to honor Chuck Snyder’s legacy to Do Well to Do Good and celebrate CDF’s 80th anniversary.

With support from the cooperative community through fundraisers like the Co-op 5k, CDF has helped to incubate, replicate and elevate cooperatives across all sectors in the U.S. and internationally for 80 years. Register now and help support cooperative development into the next decades!

This year’s race is your co-op’s chance to out run, out spirit, and out fundraise last year’s winners—CoBank: Growing Rural America, Team CFC, Neighboring Co-operators, ACDI/VOCA Globetrotters, and NCB Sole Shakers. Whether you meet us in DC or run by yourself or with friends, colleagues, or family at home, show your support for 80 years of serving the cooperative community!

This year’s shirts commemorate CDF’s 80th anniversary of incubating, replicating and elevating cooperatives in the U.S. and internationally.

Register by March 31 to get your Co-op 5k t-shirt in your preferred size. Preferred t-shirt size is not guaranteed after March 31. Race packets for virtual participants will begin to ship on April 4.

Register by March 31
