About This Activity

Join Catholic Charities and The Ark Services for Youth at this fun-filled “glow in the dark” event on August 20, 2016.  All proceeds will benefit the more than 300 homeless and precariously housed youth served by The Ark Services for Youth each year -- it's a great cause and a great reason to have fun!

Come dressed in your best costume to light up the night and run, walk, skip, or crawl the 5K course on and around Hackett Catholic Prep’s Campus.

There will be prizes for the best costume (dress in all the glow gear you can find!)
Enjoy delicious snacks after the 5K (lots of campfire goodies!)
Visit the “Youth Booths” to learn about local happenings and services for youth
Stay after for the dance and party celebrating our amazing youth!
There's not another race in Kalamazoo like this one.  So get your “glow” on and light up the night like a firefly!
