In 2019, over 350 people joined us for this fun family event. Join us in 2021 at Saint Ferdinand Park as we "Light the Darkness" for suicide prevention awareness. Choose between a 5K and 1 Mile course that can be enjoyed by runners and walkers of all ages! All participants will receive a custom glow in the dark event t-shirt and also be given a one of a kind glow in the dark finishers medal as they cross the finish line. Additional Glow items will be for sale, and we encourage participants to get creative and have fun with this exciting theme. Registration can be done online, or by visiting the JFK or James J. Eagan Community Centers and completing a registration form. Fees are $25 until September 1st, 2021 then $30 through race day. T-shirt sizes can only be guaranteed to those who register by September 1st, 2021. Call 314-921-4250 or 314-921-4466 for more information!
