About This Activity

Join the fun in 2019 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 a few free glow items to get them started. All finishers will also be given a one of a kind glow in the dark finisher’s 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 through the James J. Eagan or JFK Community Centers. Fees are $25 until SEP 1 and $30 SEP 2 through race day. T-shirt sizes can only be guaranteed to those who register by SEP 1. This event is not officially timed, however a timing clock will be on display at the finish line if you wish to check your own finish time. Together we can bring light to the lives of those who need it most.

Packet Pick up will take place at the JFK Community Center located at 315 Howdershell Rd Florissant, MO 63031 on Wednesday SEP 18 from 12P-9P and Thursday SEP 19 from 8A-9P. Day of packet pick up will take place at Saint Ferdinand Park at Pavilion 4 (by sand volleyball courts) from 5:00P-7P.

The event will also feature a free outdoor concert by Fanfare FT Kittie Moller at 5:30P as well as food trucks, raffles, 50/50 and more. Call  or visit 314-921-4466 for more information.
