Butterfly GloWalk 5K Fun Run

September 5, 2019

My Hope Chest's "Butterfly gloWalk, 5K FUN Run 2019" is taking flight at dusk soon... along the beautiful Gulf of Mexico on Madeira Beach!

This Family Friendly GloWalk 5KFun RUN FUNdraiser kicks off on Madeira Beach at the historical, Snack Shack! LIVE MUSIC will kick off the PRE-Event festivities at 6pm. Arrive early to visit the “Face Painters Station,” and the "Wing Fitter’s Station" to fasten your wings! Delicious food for sale at the Snack Shack for purchase, and a full bar for those 21 and over who are ready to have fun and relax.

The Race starts at dusk, runners first and walkers to follow, along the Gulf and a 5K route, donning their colorful wings and lots of groovy glowing BLING! You'll wear smiles for miles while enjoying the chill vibe and gorgeous Florida sunset along the route. Walkers will immediately follow runners for their 1 mile walk (or whatever makes you happy)!

The 5K turn is at the half way mark where participants will be cheered for the last hurrah back to the finish line! Kids young and old will have fun and survivors can share stories and hugs, relaxing at the beach.
