About This Activity

WHAT IS FINISH THE FIGHT AT NIGHT?  It is a 5K Run and Walk that benefits the American Cancer Society.  It is different because the race takes place at night, and participants light up the course with glow-in-the-dark apparel, wrist bands, and dedicated Luminaria lighting the track.  After the race, participants are treated to a post-race party with food from LOCAL FOOD TRUCKS, entertainment, raffles and prizes.

*There will be glow apparel and paint available for donation to help participants “glow” as you run/walk through the tow path.
