Light up the night in Oswego.

This year’s event will feature both a 5k run and a 2.5K walk.

Our event will be at Breitbeck Park.

Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m.

All proceeds from this event will support ARISE’s work to help people with disabilities live freely and independently in the community.

Pre-registration is open now http://www.lightboxreg.com/light-up-the-night-oswego

Free T-shirt to the first 50 prepaid registrations.

For those of you who did not get a chance to join us last year, this is how it works:

We start the event just as it is turning dark, standing where we can all look out at one of the most highly rated sunset views in the world, according to National Geographic magazine.

Our event starts out with a couple of party dances, just to get warmed up and ready to go, then at 7:30 p.m. this professionally timed event will depart.

So what else makes us so unique? Glad you asked!

We want the people taking part in the run or walk to “glow” so come up with your best ideas.

Glow body paint, glow in the dark clothing, glow sticks, glow toys, flashlights, battery operated Christmas lights, costumes, etc.
