2019 Glow 4 IT 5K Run/Walk
April 26, 2019 | 7:30-10pm
Hydro Park, Kaukauna
Join us to run, walk and GLOW for inclusion. Help shine the light on the abilities of individuals with differing abilities in our community! SOAR Fox Cities is hosting a Glow 4 IT 5K run/walk in April 2019 to bring awareness to and raise money for SOAR’s programs and services focused on including youth and adults with differing abilities in the greater community!
This is a non-competitive and family friendly 5K run/walk starting at sunset, and lighting up the way to a party at the finish line with lasers, glow sticks, black lights, and a DJ! All are welcome!
Inclusion is involvement and empowerment, where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized. An inclusive community promotes and sustains a sense of belonging; it values and practices respect for the abilities, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living of all its members. At SOAR Fox Cities we work every day for inclusion for our participants and those living with a disability.
