Bring Home the Cookies 5K
Feb
24
Girl Scouts—Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) and State Forty Eight Foundation, in partnership with State Forty Eight, are teaming up once again to empower local entrepreneurs and celebrate during the last weekend of the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Season at the annual Bring Home the Cookies 5K on Feb. 24 at the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, Ariz.

The Bring Home the Cookies 5K is open to the community and will feature a high-energy 5K, family fun run/walk and for the first time ever–the debut of a Celebrity Cookie Eating Contest with a lineup of local personalities like radio host Lady La, Melissa Anaya from Eat Drink AZ, plus alums from the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury.

There will be noteworthy cameos from your favorite local sports mascots and a vibrant Runner’s Village, traditional booths and vendors including State Forty Eight Foundation grant winners and Girl Scout entrepreneurs promoting their business and selling handmade products. Girl Scouts will also be onsite selling cookies for a final opportunity for the community to stock up before the season ends on Feb. 25. The proceeds from the event will benefit both non-profit organizations to support leadership and entrepreneurship opportunities in our communities.

The family fun run/walk will kick off 8:30 a.m., followed by the inaugural Celebrity Cookie Eating Contest at 10 a.m., and the Bring Home the Cookies 5K at 10:30 a.m. The course is a fast-paced route that loops with a minimal elevation change. All registered participants will receive a limited-edition State Forty Eight 5K shirt, medal, and a delicious package of Girl Scout Cookies.

Sponsors include The Arizona Cardinals, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Clear Channel and Massage Envy.
