The Cookie 5K will be held Saturday, Aug. 13, at 9 a.m. at Lake Como. This is a fundraiser for Herosearch.org, an online nonprofit that connects community members with local charities that need their donation items.
Cookie Cart, a nonprofit youth organization, will supply cookies for all participants. Children will also receive hero capes with registration.
In addition to the 5K, there will be a collection of donated items for area homeless youth from 8 to 11 a.m. Anyone can donate items whether registered or not. Pre-registration ends on Sunday, July 31.
The fee is $25 with $5 discount for bringing a donation. Register and find the list of needed donations at www.Herosearch.org.
