Virtual 5K to benefit area students in need

To counter the impact of Covid-19 on fundraising and holding events, a local group will host the first ever Texarkana Cares Virtual 5K. This event will run from February 1 through March 31, so participants can get registered and submit their results to the event organizers as they are completed. 

All the proceeds from this event will benefit the Texas A&M University Texarkana Eagle Pantry. The Eagle Pantry feeds student success by providing essential non-perishable and personal hygiene items to students in need, and is available to any student.

Registration for the Texarkana Cares Virtual 5K is just  $20.00 per adult, and there is a separate registration for students (both TAMUT, local colleges, and K-12) that is $10.00 per registrant. To sign up go to
Since this event is virtual and timing is honor-system based, there will not be prizes for the fastest participant. You can walk, jog, run, bike, hike, or swim - anything counts! Be on the lookout for information about door prizes and giveaways!
Feel free to email pictures of your training or event by sending them to! Your pictures will be added to the race page for all participants to see.
