C5 Texas Chosen as Charity Partner for Local 5K
Oct 1, 2013

Austin, Texas – The C5 Youth Foundation of Texas has been selected by Glow Run 5K as their charity partner for their 2013 Austin race.

‘The Coolest Glow Run on the Planet’, the Glow Run 5K Austin will take place on Friday, November 1st at 7pm. The run and post run dance party will light up the corn maze as thousands of runners and walkers make their way around the music filled 3.1 miles course. Along with event prizes, hundreds of giveaways will be tossed out during the AFTERGLOW dance party.

“We’re very excited for this opportunity,” said Jeff North, Executive Director. “Fun events like this help promote C5 Texas to the communities we serve and helps us advance our mission of changing the odds for high potential youth.”

Christa SanFilippo, Director of Public Relations and Fundraising, agrees. “100% of the sponsorships for the Glow Run 5K Austin are given to C5 Texas,” said SanFilippo. “That in combination with proceeds from runner fees allows C5 Texas to continue to provide high quality and focused programs to our young leaders.”

 

Editor's note: Glow Run 5K, the race organization, has pulled the Austin event from their 2013 calendar. They are rescheduling for a new Austin location in 2014. C5 Texas has been added as a charity partner for their DFW race on November 8. For more information, please visit glowrun5k.com/dallas.
