Dallas shines at Glow Run
The Dallas Glow Run Committee would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the volunteers, sponsors and participants that came out in support of the 2nd annual Dallas Glow Run held on Oct. 14 at the Academy Building. Over 100 volunteers lined the course to cheer and guide runners and walkers and make sure the event ran smoothly.
This year's event included a newly added Kid's Dash for children ages 6 and under. The young participants enjoyed the party atmosphere and were greeted by glow-in-the-dark batons from the Anytime Fitness mascot and a finisher's metal that was proudly displayed to family and friends.
Next, more than 400 runners and walkers, many of which were dressed in costume, completed the 5k fun run through Downtown and the Dallas City Park to the illumination of 2,500 led twinkling lights. The event raises thousands of dollars each year for Christmas Cheer, a local non-profit that provides food assistance to families in need.
The Dallas Glow Run Committee would also like to thank staff from the City of Dallas Parks and Recreation Department, Police and Community Development for their support with the event.
Dallas is fortunate to have so many caring people to create a fun, family-friendly activity that showcases why it's so great to live in a small town. We look forward to an even bigger and better Glow Run in October 2018 and hope that you'll be there to celebrate it with us!
