Running for home on May 26th
Join us this Sunday as we cheer on COTS supporters “Running for Home.”
This year marks the 25th annual KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay. As a part of the Miles for a Mission program, we have 4 different teams (including our first-ever junior team) fundraising for COTS who will be identifiable by their bright red shirts!
To support one of our runners, please donate on our Team COTS 2013 page now!
Vermont’s First Chicken Run!
Sunday, June 30th Learn all about it now!
Come join us for a great, fun event for the entire family. Scenic course along the Vermont National Country Club. All participants receive a race T-shirt and are encouraged to wear it during the event. The first 250 people to register will receive a chicken hat.
Please Note: The registration fees for this event ($35 for adults and $25 for youth 14 and under) do not go to COTS.
If you would like to participate in the Deal Chicken 5K AND support COTS, you can create a FirstGiving fundraising page now!
Thank You COTS Walkers!
We had so much fun at this year’s COTS Walk. We were inspired to see more than 1,500 supporters join us to raise awareness about the realities of homelessness in our community.
We also grateful for all of your fundraising efforts — as the Walk is COTS’ largest single-day fundraiser all year. We’re closing in on our goal to raise $175,000 – so send in those final envelopes! (Mail to COTS, PO Box 1616, Burlington, VT 05402)
Through the support of our wonderful sponsors, all the money raised by walkers goes directly toward COTS shelter and services, including our prevention outreach.
Check out our Facebook page in the coming days for salutes to individuals and teams who met the COTS Walk Challenge of raising $1,000. (If you’re close to the goal, there’s still time to send in donations for the Challenge Match: For donors who reach $1,000 a generous Challenge Grant will match your donations up to $15,000.)
We can’t wait to see everyone next year. Mark your calendars for the COTS Walk on May 4, 2014. May the Forth be with you, until then!
