At this year’s event, we have incorporated a fun run on Friday night.  The GLOW Run is a fun and exhilarating 5k that focuses on entertainment and excitement!  Don’t worry about being timed.  It is going to be an evening full of GLOW gear, music and lots of family fun.  You can walk, jog, or run…  your choice!  It’s great for all ages and fitness levels.  All we ask is that you “RUN/WALK” in support of empowering our youth. 
PDY is proud to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by donating a portion of our proceeds to help them work to drive the overall survival rate of childhood cancer to 90%.  Because of St. Jude supporters, countless children have enjoyed a lifetime of moments they might otherwise have missed.
So, bring your children, family and friends…  it’s time for a night out on the town!  There will be vendors, food trucks and concessions to make the evening more eventful.
On Saturday, the day will be filled with workshop sessions for ages 4 up to adults.  It will be a refreshing time of empowerment to help bridge the gap between youth and adults.  And to top it all off, enjoy a concert featuring Grammy Award winner Tye Tribbett,  Jor’Dan Armstrong & Willie Moore Jr.  

This is THE weekend family event to attend.  

Come enjoy the festivities.
