Desk to 5K

Published: April 30, 2018Updated: April 30, 2018

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Desk to 5K. We look forward to seeing you again next year!


History of the Event

For four years, CPCA has hosted a 5k for our students. This event has given us a creative spin on our physical education program and allowed the students to explore the community trails around our school. The biggest benefit to the Desk to 5k event is that allows us to capitalize on our core value of cultivating physical fitness as the blessing God intended.

Students train for this event starting 6 weeks before the scheduled race date. Training takes place during their regular PE time and students are introduced to proper stretching techniques, appropriate running form, and how to set realistic fitness goals.


In the past, Desk to 5k funds have been used to support our school and our missionary efforts around the world.
