The Special 5K

We believe that big changes can happen 1 kilometer at a time. That’s why we partnered with Black Girls RUN! – an organization committed to motivating Black women to make fitness and healthy living a priority – to create the Special 5K. A race that wasn’t about winning or setting a personal record, but about feeling good while doing good. And good it did – in partnership with Feeding America, Special K® donated $10 for every 5k completed by the Black Girls RUN! community.
