I wouldn’t normally jump at the chance to freeze my cookies off, but when it benefits the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign, which provides life-saving vaccines to children in developing countries, how the heck can I say no? And if I’m going to freeze my cookies off, I think you should too by participating in the Freeze Your Cookies Off 5k on Saturday, November 23rd in American Fork.
Here’s a little bit about the race:
Put your sweet tooth to the test and flex your running muscles simultaneously at the 2nd annual FREEZE YOUR COOKIES OFF 5k and cookie feast.
Cookie Athletes work (out) for cookies, so kick off the holiday season right with a 5k. The Saturday before Thanksgiving we’ll enjoy a gallop through the crisp air followed by a Cookie & Milk Buffet, hot chocolate, and music.
The race is professionally timed. We have prizes, giveaways, and swag. Runners get a free tech shirt, gourmet cookies & fresh milk, and creamy hot chocolate.
I will be at the American Fork Fitness Center on Saturday, November 23rd with my fellow Utah Shot@Life champions, though you may not recognize me under the 47 layers of clothing I’ll be wearing.
Participants in the Freeze Your Cookies Off 5k get to enjoy:
- Gourmet cookie, milk and hot cocoa buffet
- Free photos by Lucid Images
- DJ music
- Cookie Athlete tech t-shirt
Pricing is $25 for an individual or $100 for a family of 5. Act now because the price goes up after October 25th!

By participating in the event, you’ll be giving children in developing countries a shot at running their own 5k someday.
