What is the Glow Run for the WIN 5k?
Glow Run for the WIN is less about how fast you run and more about enjoying the glowing experience and course with your friends and family. For our event, we see participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes and sizes ready to GLOW! So whether you are a casual walker or an avid runner The Glow Run for the WIN invites you to be part of the fun.
Why Glow Run for the WIN?
Alarming statistics indicate that, as you read this short sentence, a woman has become the victim of assault. According to the Partnership Against Domestic Violence, every 9 seconds, another woman in the U.S. is beaten.
Every nine seconds.
It’s a sobering reality for one in four women in our country who will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, most of these victims between the ages of 20 and 24, Violence against women may occur mostly behind closed doors—60 percent of domestic violence happens at home—but that doesn’t mean the problem is any less visible. It pours out into the streets—domestic violence is the third leading cause of homelessness among families—and into future generations. Girls who witness domestic violence and don’t receive help are more likely to enter an abusive relationship as a teen. And boys from families of domestic violence are far more likely to become abusers as teens and adults, if no one intervenes
But YOU can make a difference and help change the statistics on June 3rd, 2017 at our 5th Annual GLOW RUN for the WIN.
This is an evening race at the beautiful Harry Meyers Park located in Rockwall, TX. This course takes you around a small peaceful lake and through the rolling hills of the park. Timing, courtesy of Rockwall Running Center.
