The Glow In The Night 5k comes to Crown Point, IN
The Giving BackPack Foundation partners with NR Road Racing for a Glowing 5k
We take the Glow in the Night 5k to the next level, leaving you with a one of a kind experience! Be prepared to get completely covered in glow powder while walking or running the 3 mile course under the cool glow of the black lights. All ages and runner/walker levels are welcome to participate!
The Giving BackPack Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation with a passion for supplying unprivileged children with backpacks and school supplies. The supplies are extremely critical for children to learn efficiently and learn at the pace in which the curriculum intends. Their primary program consists of a year-round school supply replenishment objective, in which they want to grow large enough to service Lake County, Indiana. Since our incorporation, The Giving BackPack Foundation has collected over $20,000 along with enough supplies to fill 2,000 backpacks. Their organization has also partnered with Boys and Girls Club to distribute 400 toys to children and school corporations to give over 1,000 backpacks.

"The Giving BackPack Foundation is extremely excited about the upcoming Glow In The NIght 5k. We anticipate a strong turnout with the expectation that participants will understand the need for educational materials for underprivileged children. The Glow in the Night 5k will be fun and exciting as well as informative and charitable. Our organization hopes to heighten our charitable exposure, gain more individual and corporate donors, and become a permanent contributor to the community.” ~ Cecil Collins, Founder of The Giving BackPack Foundation.
