Glow Fun Run – April 21, 2018
We are thrilled to announce our first ever “Glow Fun Run“ organized and run by Carol Madere’s Southeastern Louisiana University’ students! The Fun Run will take place at Southeaster’s campus on April 21st at 5:00pm. The purpose of the event is for the students to raise money for We Heart Veterans, a local 501c(3) non-profit organization focused on providing non-medical home care services for our local aging wartime veterans! The students need your help whether it be a monetary sponsorship or a donation of goods. Here is what the students are looking for:
- Event t-shirt
- Food & drinks for participants at event
- Printing of event banners
- 1 mile starts at 5:30
- 2 mile at 5:50
- Top 3 male (1&2 mile)
- Top 3 female (1&2)
- Top 3 kids (1 mile only)
- Top 3 overall – 1 and 2 mile
- Best Costume (get DRESSED UP it’s more fun!)
This would be a great opportunity for your organization to gain visibility in Hammond and especially among Southeastern students, all in the service of a very worthy cause. If you have any questions or need further information, please email email@example.com.
