About This Activity

Get out the glow sticks and the neon! We're going to light up the night on October 4 at Glow Toledo. No matter your fitness level, this run is for you! The mostly flat course starts and finishes at Woodlands Park in Perrysburg, OH. The event will start at 7:30 pm followed by the 1 mile fun walk, run (or roll). You will finish between glowing Run for Reece banners and a glow-in-the-dark afterparty. Race Swag Bags will include: Neon Glow Toledo t-shirt, a glow bracelet, a glow necklace, sponsor swag and your bib number. Be sure to wear brightly colored duds (socks, tutus, leggings, shoes, crazy hair ties, etc...) to make sure you glow bright!

About the Cause

Reece Bova was born with a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of fallot with severe peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis in March of 2012. Though his condition is a lot more stable than it was when he was younger, Reece will still require heart procedures by specialists at Boston Children's Hospital every 6-12 months for the forseeable future. Run for Reece was founded to help with the growing costs of surgeries, physical therapy and other medical expenses. All profits will go directly toward Reece's medical expenses.
