At U Run we are committed to giving back to our community. We dedicate our races to children. We are faithful to children and families, understanding that 1 in 3 families are rocked by childhood cancer, terminal illnesses every day. We work with Children’s Miracle Network, with a passion and drive to support our very own neighborhood leader Phoenix Children’s Hospital, here in our hometown of Phoenix AZ.
Why Phoenix Children’s Hospital? Our own family was rocked to its core when our daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was just 4 years old. At the onset of her treatment, a family friend encouraged us to transfer her care to PCH. Within days of exceptional care at PCH, they had discovered our daughter was misdiagnosed and was, in fact, cancer free. PCH investigated the issue deeper to discover the diagnosing doctor misdiagnosed 7 other children. PCH not only saved my daughter’s life but they took their passion for children beyond their hospital walls to save 7 other families. Our family will always be deeply indebted to PCH for their love, compassion, educated doctors, staff, and giving our family and daughter HOPE.
We dedicate our races to Childhood Cancer Awareness and make sure we are working to spread the word around the nation one runner, once race at a time.
Foam Glow 5K is a fun filled experience exposing runners to Glowing Foam and a ton of Blacklight’s all over the course. Glowing runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds. Whether you are a long term runner or a walk around the park stroller, the 3 miles of the Foam Glow 5K course will have you shining bright and waiting for the next run.
The Foam Glow5K™ has been setup with very simple rules:
1) White shirt (any white T-shirt will work) worn at the start line. The more white you wear the better.
2) Foam Glow 5k runners sprinting through Foam Glow 5K Zones to the Finish line!
Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new canvas. By the end, they look like they fell into a tye-dye machine and are covered with different colored foam that glows under black lights.
Along the running path you will find Foam Glow 5K Zone’s, which are associated with a designated color: orange, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Foam Glow 5K Zones, They will run through different color foam that Glows in the Dark under our high intensity black lights. All products are 100% natural and non-toxic. At the end of the race there will be a Foam Glow 5K after party filled with Music pumping from the stage, Foam Glow 5K and tons of black lights!
Every Registered Runner gets:
– Foam Glow 5K Event T-Shirt
– Get blasted by foam at our Glow Zones
– The best night of their life
Are you ready for the best After Race party in the world? After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much fun one person can handle. In most locations we will have food, Foam Glow 5K, and festivities that will make your Foam Glowed head spin.
