OUR WHY AND MISSION

Since 1998 the Olmsted Spirit 5k has brought the Olmsted and surrounding communities together for a morning full of fitness and family-friendly fun.  Our vision is to serve this community with an extraordinary event that leaves lasting memories you will remember the rest of your life.

In 2021 we took on a dual mission.  Since 2014 our goal was to raise funds for Olmsted Falls graduates who gave back and served their community while in school.  Last year we decided to create another initiative to help out businesses/organizations in the Olmsted community who were effected by the pandemic.  We decided to label this our Olmsted Community Fund.  Together with our Olmsted Spirit Scholarship Fund, we raised $3,000 to split between our two initiatives.

For 2023 we will continue to donate our race proceeds to our Spirit Scholarship Fund.  In addition, we will also split the proceeds and donate to the Olmsted Community Center.  The team there does so much good for our communities and deserves our support!
