The Opp Khelpanan Society is a 503(c) non-profit civic organization. Our purpose is to promote leadership, volunteerism, and service for families, businesses, and entities of our community. We have events throughout the year to raise funds that we use to give back to the community. We recently, in May, awarded $2000 in college scholarships to 4 deserving Opp High School graduates. We have also donated to many different programs in the community such as: i. Opp Fire Department for their fire safety education program for the youth ii. Alzheimer’s organization iii. Full Tummy project of Covington County And many others

We are having a Back-to-school 5K Color Run at Frank Jackson State Park in Opp, AL on August 12th. This is Opp’s very first color run and our first 5K. We are very excited about this event. The race starts at 9 am and registration begins at 7 am. Runners can register online at www.active.com up until August 1st. Search for Opp Khelpanan Society Color Run. You can also contact OKS via email at oks36467@gmail.com or via our Facebook page Opp Khelpanan Society. The race will not be timed and there will be no age groups. The first three males/females to cross the finish line will receive a medal. We know this is different from many 5K races but this is a fun run event to benefit the community. Cost is $25 per person for pre-registered runners and $30 the day of the race. Preregistered runners will receive a tshirt and race bag. Kids are welcome to participate and children ages 5 and under may run free of charge and do not have to register but will not receive a tshirt or race bag. We are asking that participants and observers bring a school supply item to donate to the cause.

The proceeds from this event will be used to provide school supply items to Opp City Schools and Fleeta School for the upcoming school year. We are excited to help our school children because they are our future. We want to help ensure that they have the supplies they need to enhance their learning experience.
