Whether you’re a competitive runner or a casual walker, we invite you to join us for a fun-filled 5k walk/run to support the Association of C5 Youth Programs. C5 changes lives, families and communities through intensive five-year leadership development and college-readiness programs targeted to high-potential teens from challenging situations. The generosity of our participants and sponsoring partners will help support more than 1,250 youth from Georgia, New England, Texas and Southern California.
Every dollar raised through the C5k directly supports the C5 Association’s work with under-resourced youth across the country who dream of creating a better future for their communities and themselves.
We are so proud that 100% of C5 graduates graduate from high school and the C5k celebrates the commitment and perseverance that it requires for each class of our students to achieve this goal.
Sponsored teams and individuals alike are welcome to participate!
Only C5 commits year-round to students for five full years to help guide them to college, career choices and community involvement beyond graduation.
Our unique five-year commitment delivers results:
100% of C5 graduates also graduate from high school.
80% of C5 teens are first-generation college scholars.
Over 90% of our graduates go to college or military service.
Each student performs over 250 hours of community service during his or her time in the program.
