Hope Glows First 5K Fun Run
April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Nevada Donor Network will host their second annual fun run/walk, but it isn’t the traditional charity walk the Southern Nevada community is used to attending. This will be a “glow run” and a night time event. HopeGlows Fun Run/Walk is hosted to raise awareness and funds to support the mission of maximizing the gift of life and health through organ, eye and tissue donation.
The event will include a D.J., costume competition, glow fun run/walk, welcome/warm-up ceremony, food trucks, activities (glow-in-the-dark face painting, horseshoe, cornhole, etc.), raffle prizes and more! Hundreds of supporters including local transplant recipients, living donors, community partners and family members of donor heroes who have given the gift of life to others will be in attendance.
Hope Glows’ attendees will be asked to pay a $25 entry fee, which includes a fun run/walk t-shirt and LED #DonateLifeFoam Stick. The Southern Nevada community will be walking for the 581 Nevadans and 115,000 Americans waiting for a lifesaving transplant. Not only that, but they’ll be walking for each new name added to the waiting list every 10 minutes. They will also walk for the 22 people who die every day in the U.S. because they do not receive a transplant in time. Southern Nevadans will walk for the more than 1.2 million Nevadans registered as a donor.
As a community, let’s walk for the donor heroes who live on through the gifts they have given to others. Let’s let our “hope glow” and show our community just how bright our hope shines. Get registered today! Saturday April 21, 2018 7 P.M. – 9 P.M. (Registration To Begin At 6 P.M. And Run/Walk At 8 P.M.)
