Neon Vibe 2014 www.theneonvibe.com Exposition Gardens, Peoria, IL 5/17/2014
Raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network
The Neon Vibe provides participants with an entertaining way to get healthy and have a blast with those you love! It is a 5K after dark, fluorescent glow light fun run. Each course is designed to light up the night with several UV black light glow-zones, upbeat dance music, and amped runners and walkers who are dressed up and ready to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. Although it is a 5k and you can run as hard as you’d like, most just want to light-it-up, have a good time, and dance their way to the finish. The fun doesn’t end there, because the “Aftervibe” celebration near the finish line is the best part of the Neon Vibe experience!”
You can register on you own or join a team called “Incredible Emma”
My oldest daughter, Emma, has been served by numerous CMN hospitals and I loved the thought of giving back. I created a team in her name, using the title of her Caring Bridge website – Incredible Emma. Team Incredible Emma was one of the largest teams present last year and I am honored to be calling on all new and old Team Incredible Emma members to join us for the fun run on May 17, 2014. — Elizabeth Kellington, ICC Advisement and Assessment
