Introducing: Coupeville Run & Ride
Coupeville Run & Ride (and Reunite) is:A fundraiser for Coupeville students. All money raised supports teacher grants for educational enrichment, college scholarships, and financial resources for students in need to equally access activities and learning opportunities. Started in 2017, this event (formally Circumnavigate Whidbey) has raised over $100,000.It is a chance for our community to get some exercise in the most beautiful town in the world, be together and catch up after the summer. We will stick together the entire time, it is NOT a race! We will run (6 miles), then ride (11.5 miles), then celebrate together.There are three ways to support this fundraising event1. In Spirit: You can Fundraise or Donate without Run & Riding2. In Body: You can participate without Fundraising3. Best of Both: You can Fundraise and Participate!
