About This Activity

Come warm up with some hot cocoa and help out some awesome causes at the Loco Hot Cocoa 5K!

The proceeds from the run will be going to support the Girl's on the Run Rio Grande Charity and the Kirtland AFB Company Grade Officer's Council. Participants will receive a Technical Shirt, while supplies last! There will be a hot cocoa tent at the finish line.

The Girls on the Run mission is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. This positive youth development program inspires third through eighth grade girls to stay true to themselves and live free from detrimental stereotypes. Each session is led by trained coaches that guide and mentor the girls through a fun and uplifting curriculum. The l2-week program concludes with all participants walking or running in a 5K (3.1 mile) event.

Girls on the Run is more than just a running program. We use the power of running and training for a 5K to empower these young girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices and embrace their gifts. This program is monumental in teaching young girls how to set a goal, work hard, find their inner strength, and accomplish the unimaginable. It is our hope that these girls will take this process and apply it to other areas in their lives.

The KAFB Company Grade Officer's Council (CGOC) is a professional organization of over 400 junior officers (2nd Lieutenants,1st Lieutenants, and Captains) serving at Kirtland AFB who dedicate their time to community service, base support, professional development, and strengthening camaraderie.

Fundraising assists the KAFB CGOC in executing the Lieutenant Professional Development Program at Kirtland AFB, which targets new active duty Air Force officers at Kirtland AFB, giving them a structured and supportive welcome and introducing them to their mission. In addition fundraising supports future base outreach programs with local Airmen. Such programs include Kirtland Against Drunk Driving (KADD), Kirtland Heritage events, and the Kirtland J-ROTC Liaison program.
