5 K Glow Run set for Children’s Miracle Network

Monday, March 3, 2014

Dakota Wesleyan University students are getting painted up and running through the quad, and lawns and the streets.


A 5K Glow Run is set for April 12, starting at the DWU campus, and organized by students in support of the Children’s Miracle Network, which will receive all proceeds. The run begins at 7 p.m. at the Christen Family Athletic Center on campus with registration beginning at 6 p.m. Cost to participate is $25 per person in advance or $35 if registering on the day. Each participant will receive a packet with a T-shirt, glow sticks, access to glow paint, map of the route, and a wrist band to attend the Finish Fest. To register online, visit www.dwu.edu/ReadySetGlow.


Finish Fest, which will be on the Dayton lawn at campus, is an after-race celebration with games, contests and fun; and in a tented area there will be a foam dance beginning right after the race. For glow-run participants, the Finish Fest and foam dance are free. The Finish Fest is free to non-racers 17 and younger, and costs $10 for non-racers 18 and older who must present a DWU I.D. or driver’s license in order to enter the foam dance. For more information contact Jeff Holstein, student activities coordinator, at jeholste@dwu.edu.
