The 8th Annual Catching Fireflies 5k Run/Walk
May 17, 2019 @ 8:15 pm - 10:00 pm
Where else will you get the opportunity to run a 5k at night, on a course that is lined with an amazing display of luminaries? This unique event is the only luminary run in Raleigh held on a nice, hot North Carolina evening where you may even have a chance to catch a few fireflies!
Runners also get a glow stick or glow necklace. It’s a sight to behold watching a trail of lights along the quiet streets!
At the same time you can honor a friend or family member who has battled cancer by purchasing a luminary with their name on it – to help light the way for others. A portion of the proceeds and 100% of the purchase price of the luminaries goes directly to Cancer Shucks.
