Make-A-Wish and Busy Bees to Host Glow Run Fundraiser [Audio]
Wednesday on Lubbock's First News, Kristen Huber, development officer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Lubbock and surrounding areas, gave details on the upcoming Glow Run to be held next month.
The "light the night" 5K run will be hosted through the efforts of both the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Busy Bees, a childcare center set to open in 2014.The run will take place at Mackenzie Park on November 8 at 8:30 pm. Registration will begin on site at 7:30. However, Huber noted that "prior to registration, you can come get painted up with glow paint and glow necklaces." Pre-run painting will begin at 6:30. After the run, a glowing after party is scheduled from 10:30 pm until12:30 am.
If one registers for the run by November 18, the cost is $35 per individual or $30 per person when registering a group of four or more. After the 18th, the cost for each increases $5. Make-A-Wish works to benefit children "with life-threatening medical conditions." The benefits from the run will be split 50/50 for Make A Wish and Busy Bees. To volunteer for the event or to register, call 785-9474.
