There's an important role at Glow Run for those with more of a volunteer style. Volunteers are needed for a variety of race duties prior to and on race day. Check Glow Run's volunteer page for more details and to sign up.
For the Irving run, Glow Run 5K partnered with the North Texas Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As the run's designated charity partner, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society pledges event volunteers and the Glow Run makes a minimum donation of $1 per runner, plus an additional $1 match per runner by the Glow Run Series. Runners are encouraged to add an additional $1 when registering. In past Glow Runs, the majority of registered runners agreed to the additional donation. The final donation total will be announced on Race Day.
