Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support COTS by participating in the Rock Point School Ooky Spooky 5k. It was a beautiful day for a run and the runners' enthusiasm was contagious!

We loved seeing everyone's clever costumes. The costume contest winners included a stick-figure family and a runner riding a T-Rex (maybe that's cheating?). There were even dogs in costume! Congratulations to the runner with the best time who was dressed as Mets' pitcher Jacob deGrom!

This year, seventy-six runners completed the 5k! We broke our fundraising record and raised over $1,600 to help people experiencing homelessness in Vermont! Pretty incredible. We are so happy to continue to help COTS in its mission to advocate for long-term solutions to end homelessness and provide emergency shelter, services, and long-term housing for Vermonters who are experiencing homelessness.

Professional photographer Fiona Small joined us for the morning and captured the event's spirit in her pictures. All of the photos from the event can be found in this photo album on Flickr.

We hope many people will join us on March 25th for our Maple 5k - a similar race with a sweet reward at the end! More details about the Maple 5k will be shared this winter.

Thanks again for making the Ooky Spooky a spooktacular event!
