Participants are encouraged to dress in their best glow attire, including glow sticks and glowing T-shirts. Awards will be given for the “most outstanding glow” to the best-dressed male and female adult (18 and older), teenager (13 to 17) and child (12 and younger).

After the race, participants will be treated to a party with food, a DJ, raffles and prizes.

“This event is an opportunity to bring more awareness to all types of cancer, pay respects to those who have been overcome by the disease, and to support those still fighting,” Chris Kosinski, multispecialty clinic manager at the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center, said. “We as a team are in this together, and we will win with the help of everyone in the community.”

The event also will include a question-and-answer session with specialists from the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center: Dr. Samay Jain, urology; Dr. Jason Schroeder, neurosurgery; Dr. Krishna Reddy, radiation oncology; and Dr. James Willey, pulmonology.

Race day registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the walk for kids at 7:30 p.m. and the 5K run and walk at 8 p.m.
