Glow in the Park is proudly presented by New Beginnings of Owensboro.  The Fun Run features a nighttime 5K that will literally leave you glowing from head to toe.  Plus, there are obstacles along the course like gigantic foam pits, two glow-water sprays and two glow-powder dustings!  And, at the end of the race, there's a big "glow-in-the-dark" dance party with live music and a DJ!
