About This Activity


The 2nd annual MayDay 5k GLOW ~ Neon Night Walk & Fun Run takes place in Lubbock, Texas, across from Texas Tech University campus. RUN, DANCE or WALK through student residential district, dining and entertainment areas across from the Red Raiders AT&T Jones Stadium. Let your energy pump to the music where dancing lights guide your festive spirit to the beat, as we pound drunk driving out of the streets of Lubbock. This route begins and ends on beautiful Glenna Goodacre Boulevard. Although this is the scene across from where Meagan Rough lost her life to a drunk driver, it provides hope to those who honor her memory and reminds participants and onlookers to prevent driving while intoxicated or chemically impaired. Just as LIFE is vibrant, we want to see how BRIGHT you can be! Night creatures, light yourselves up with Neon, LEDs, glow accessories and anything to stand out in the dark as we all make West Texas GLOW, GLISTEN, BLINK and SHINE. Amped up finish line festivities will be a celebration of the lives you vow to save and the beautiful life of MayMay, as glowing beach balls, balloons and bubbles dance to the beat cheering your arrival and our 5K winners. This GLOWING event also includes live music, costume contest, a little shopping and awarding a scholarship to one very deserving student who proves to be dedicated to taking a firm stand against Driving Drunk.


Net proceeds benefit the Meagan Rough Memorial Foundation, providing educational scholarships disbursed in 2014.
