In 2019, over 350 people joined us for this fun family event. Join us in 2021 at Saint Ferdinand Park as we "Light the Darkness" for suicide prevention awareness. Choose between a 5K and 1 Mile course that can be enjoyed by runners and walkers of all ages! All participants will receive a custom glow in the dark event t-shirt and also be given a one of a kind glow in the dark finishers medal as they cross the finish line. Additional Glow items will be for sale, and we encourage participants to get creative and have fun with this exciting theme. Registration can be done online, or by visiting the JFK or James J. Eagan Community Centers and completing a registration form. Fees are $25 until September 1st, 2021 and $30 September 2nd, 2021 through race day. T-shirt sizes can only be guaranteed to those who register by September 1st, 2021. Call 314-921-4250 or 314-921-4466 for more information!

Packet Pick up will take place at the JFK Community Center located at 315 Howdershell Rd Florissant, MO 63031 on Wednesday September 15th from 5P-8P and Thursday September 16th from 9A-8P. Day of packet pick up will take place at Saint Ferdinand Park at Pavilion 4 (back of the park by sand volleyball courts) from 5:00P-7:00P. 

100% of the net proceeds will be donated to two local mental health and suicide prevention organizations to help fund outreach programs in our local schools including the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and CHADS Coalition for Mental Health.
