We did it, Cedar Park!  

The 2017 Cedar Park 5K completed its fundraising mission last week, collecting $50,496 and earning an all-school ice cream celebration.  This record achievement was made possible by the groundswell of generous parent and community support.  Thank you to every Cedar Park family who donated in any capacity to the PTC's continuing mission of improving Cedar Park.  

The team and individual competitions ended last Thursday, but donations are still welcome through October at https://www.firstgiving.com/411287/cedar-park-5k.  Top individual earners walk away with a lasered CP5K hydroflask, while fastest runners earn a jamba pack.  The three top grade-level teams will all enjoy an additional party.

Huge thanks are due to our 5K chairs, Erin Hire and Torey Muhs, and their hard-working 5K team.  This committee gave CPMS their most precious commodity– their time.  Weeks of effort went into this event and we are humbly grateful for every hour taken, from securing corporate sponsors to organizing event logistics.


Corporate matching funds are incredibly valuable to this 5K effort.  Columbia, Intel, and Nike all offer matching fund programs.  If you have questions regarding your online receipt or about matching your CPMS donation, please contact Torey (cedarpark5k@gmail.com).
