Ready, set, glow! This year’s Glo-n-Go 5K Fun Run was a smashing success. About fifty participants gathered in front of the Winyah Auditorium on the evening of August 3, decked out in neon shirts, glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces, and even body paint. People from Georgetown and beyond–along with their dogs–took to the streets in a flood of neon.

First man to finish was Blake Joseph and first woman was Nancy Altman. Other awards went to the Youngest Finisher (Lawson Angner), the Wisest Finisher (Barbie Jones), the Most Glowing Finisher (Nathan Gates), and the Fastest Dog (Felix) who pulled his owner Steve Attias over the finish line in second place overall.

While some competitors ran as fast as they could, others chose to walk and enjoy the evening. “It’s not about winning,” said TGS alumna Isabella. “It’s about getting to spend time with your friends and just hand out.” Whether they walked, ran, strolled, or hitched a ride on one of the many golf carts, everyone had a great time. We are already looking forward to next year’s event.
