The Boys and Girls Club are trying something a little bit different this year.  Normally they have an annual 5k walk and run, their "Race for Reasons" - but this year they thought they'd shake it up a little! That's why they've opted to go for the new  walk and run - The Glow Run.  The Glow Run is a fundraising walk and run held in the evening, with lots of fun reflective gear.  They've got a new perspective and lots of new prizes.  There's going to be plenty of fun for all the family - even the littlest ones that can't do the walk or run.  They're working with us here at the stations to get YOU signed up as soon as possible.  They're already doing great, and already have more people signed up then they thought they would, but we could always use more to get the Boys and Girls Club all the funding they need.  I got to talk with Meghan Beard with the Boys and Girls Club Glow Run, about some of the details.

As you can see, there's been a fire lit under these folks! That's why they'll be out at the Sedalia GNC in the Thompson Hills Shopping Center on Thursday, June 12.  The gang will be out there from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. to give away tons of prizes and get people signed up for the Glow Run.

The run will begin at 8:15 p.m. Friday, June 13 on the State Fair Community College campus. Participants will receive glow-in-the-dark T-shirts, as well as necklaces and other “glow swag” and will be directed by volunteers holding glow-in-the-dark batons. Immediately following the race will be a medal ceremony at the Fred. E. Davis Multipurpose Building.  Entry fees for the Glow Run 5K Run/Walk are $25 before June 13, or $30 the day of the race. Glow gear will also be available for purchase for $5.

So don't forget, the advance packet pick-up and giveaway will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday June 12 at GNC in Thompson Hills Shopping Center. Those wishing to register may do so online at or by searching for “Glow 5K Run/Walk presented by Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri” on For more information call the Club at 826-8331.  See you at the Glow Run live broadcast at the Sedalia GNC on Thursday from 3-6.

Glowingly yours,
