|Help raise funds for the Midtown Greenway!|
Our founders had the idea for the Greenway, then formed the Midtown Greenway Coalition to get it built. Now we work to protect and enhance it. Join us for a glowing night of fun and fundraising on the nation's best urban trail!
The Greenway Glow consists of THREE events in ONE NIGHT:
1. Community Arts Festival in the Greenway. The festival is free to Midtown Greenway Coalition members, and a free-will donation of $10 or more is requested from non-members to help support the artists and raise funds for the Greenway.
Purchase will-call tickets on this web-site. Ticket holders receive a free map to the art/performances.
2. 5K Twilight Fun Run in the Greenway. Dress up in a glowing costume and join us for a 5K fun run in the Greenway! Registration is $25 (early bird), with $75 in additional pledges/donations required. (Or just donate all or part of the pledge yourself.)
Runners receive a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt, glowing necklace, free food and drinks, free tickets to the Arts Festival, and free entry to the post-party. Visit the Arts Festival before and after the run.
3. 10 Mile Bike Ride in the Greenway. Dress yourself and your bike up for a glowing 10-mile bike ride in the Greenway! Registration is $25 (early bird), with $75 in additional pledges/donations required. (Or just donate all or part of the pledge yourself.)
Bikers receive a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt, glowing necklace, free food and drinks, free tickets to the Arts Festival, and free entry to the post-party. Visit the Arts Festival during the ride!
The Fun Run and Bike Ride are TEAM events. If you don't have a team (of 2 or more), simply join one. The teams that accept members are noted with a special symbol.
Midtown Greenway Coalition members get free tickets to the Arts Festival and $10 off Glow Run or Ride registration!, To become a member of the Midtown Greenway Coalition, visit www.midtowngreenway.org to make a membership gift. Then, come back to this page and use the code "MGC" in the discount section when registering via the link on the upper left.
Run or Bike in the Glow for Only $15!
Many participants will be participating in the 5K Run or the 10-Mile Ride for only $15! How? Midtown Greenway Coalition members receive $10 off the $25 early-bird registration fee. (Early bird deadline is June 1.) Then, to reach the $75 in pledges, they will ask 3 people to make charitable donations of $25 each to support the Greenway.
Once you register for the run or bike ride, you will receive your own online fundraising page and link to send to your friends and family, so you can quickly raise the required $75 in pledges. Raise $125 and also receive a pair of Greenway socks to go along with your glow-in-the Dark t-shirt!
