The Andrew Schmeer Foundation honors the memory of Andrew Schmeer who was tragically killed on September 8, 2014 in a car accident. Funds raised in this 5K will help to recognize well-rounded students along the Treasure Coast each year by providing college scholarships for those in need. We are also raising funds for donations for children in Hospice and "Dogs and Cats Forever" Pet Rescue.
The 5K "GLOW" Run/Walk is a virtual event. We will be passing out the shirts and runners bags at South Causeway Park on South Beach (next to the Historical Museum) on October 9th starting at 4:00. Racers can "unofficially" run our certified course along the Ft. Pierce Inlet, cross over the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway and back or any route of they choose. Runners will "GLOW" as they run the 5K course and finish the race through our candle lit finish line.
Runners can also run virtually at the place and time of their choice.
Children ages 5-12 will also have a 1/4 mile "GLOW" run of their own.
Certification of course by USA Track and Field but there will not be an official timer at the time of the event.
