BENEFITING: March of Dimes Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 19, 2016
November 19th, 2016 5:15 pm -- UVa Ampitheater
The Glow Run 5K will begin in the Amphitheater and flow through the surrounding neighborhoods and end full circle at the Amphitheater. Participants will gather at the Amphitheater before the start of the race for a DJ, food, special guests, (like our very own Olympian, Leah Smith) and a fun time! Since this 5K will take place in the evening, we will be using Glow bracelets, Glow necklaces, and other Glow-in-the-dark materials to party up the atmosphere and light up the night!! We are also excited to have our local Ambassador family for 2016-2017 sharing their story that night.
The March of Dimes Club at UVA’s Glow Run 5K benefits the March of Dimes’ mission of improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, prematurity, and infant mortality, through programs of advocacy, education, community service and research. For the past 75 years, the March of Dimes has been working towards a day when every baby is born healthy. March of Dimes is the only national non profit to accomplish their mission (eraticating POLIO) and now they have refocused on Premature birth and birth defects.
$20 REGISTRATION WILL INCLUDE A T SHIRT, 5 RAFFLE TICKETS, (prizes announced soon) AND PURPLE GLOW MATERIALS.
