About This Activity

Grab your running shoes, bright clothes, glow sticks and maybe even a costume and join us at the Riverway Trail on the Hike and Bike Trail System in Grand Island on Saturday, May 31, 2014 as we enjoy a great night of fun and fellowship with friends and family. 

The Hope Glows 5K Fun Run and Walk is an opportunity to raise funds to support the local American Cancer Society and the Relay For Life of Hall County.  The American Cancer Society is the leading nonprofit organization fighting cancer in our country and the only community-based volunteer cancer organization.  The American Cancer Society allocates money wisely in order to offer hope, progress and answers to individuals in Nebraska and across the nation.

Each year, approximately 8,765 Nebraskans are diagnosed with cancer.  Through the generosity of the Hall County Community, you are helping support the mission of the American Cancer Society by helping people Stay Well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people Get Well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by Finding Cures through investment in groundbreaking discoveries; and by Fighting Back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight!

Let's help finish the fight against cancer!

No Refunds - Spring time in Nebraska means severe weather is possible.  If the weather becomes unsafe due to impending thunderstorms or lightening, the fun run/walk will be postponed until Saturday, June 7, 2014.  We want to protect the health and well-being of our runners and walkers!  Please be sure to check your email (the email you provide when you register) for more information should the skies look threatening.

*  Headphones will not be needed; music will be playing along the route to keep the energy level high!  Please no pets.  There will be music and bright lights along the trail.  Pets may become frightened and react negatively in a large crowd.  Since we will have lots of runners and walkers along the trail at one time, please be patient at the start of the run/walk.  This event will NOT be officially timed; please enjoy a fun night with friends and family.  If you choose to pass others on the trail, please follow the standard trail etiquette and pass on the left, announcing your presence to other runners and walkers as you approach.  Those with strollers, please start toward the back of the pack and respect all trail etiquette and move to single file when runners approach.
