About This Activity

Running and cupcakes, they go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Join us for a fun run on what most likely will be a hot steamy summer day.  The 5th Annual Cupcake Run will be donating part of the proceeds this year to Blessings In a Backpack Frederick Schools - a great organization that provides food for elementary school children in our community who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on weekends during the school year.

AND we're also going to support SHIP this year too!

SHIP is an organization that addresses the urgent needs for the hundreds of Frederick County students encountering homelessness.
Created by and sustained by caring citizens, the Student Homeless Initiative Partnership (SHIP) seeks to:

  • provide emergency and short term support in the form of improved temporary housing, food, clothing, and extracurricular activities for those in need;
  • assist families in navigating and accessing available community services; and
  • collaborate with Frederick County Public Services  and other organizations to avoid duplication of effort and to improve the community for all families and children.

So lace up those sneakers and get ready for one SWEET run.
