Glow Run raised almost 2,500 dollars on Friday evening.
The money donated goes to Cystic Fibrosis Canada and the Kinettes’ Project Hope Scholarships.
Roughly 65 participants ran around Bud Miller All-Season Park. The weather was much better this year, given that last year it snowed.
Bayley Blackwell, member of the Glow Run committee, says that it’s great to see the city come together for a good cause.
“I think it’s important just to get people out in the community. There’s not a lot of fundraisers for Cystic Fibrosis in the community. It’s just a really important cause and I think the Lloydminster Kinettes really enjoy putting on this run.”
The Kinettes Club is hopeful they will be able to do the Glow Run next year because the turnout for this year was good.
“We also raised 959.61 (dollars): which goes to our Kinettes’ Club, which will be spread throughout the community, and will be put towards our Project Hope Scholarship,” says Blackwell.
The Kinettes club will also donate almost 1,500 dollars to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
