The first annual Glow Run attracted crowds of more than 600 people and was a celebration of togetherness. Featuring motivational speakers, many of whom have struggled with addiction in the past, music, live performances and hours of dancing, the family-friendly event is designed to bring the community together to support the Wabash Valley Recovery Alliance and Recovery Center.
Terre Haute is a place that is very close to Marty Norman’s heart. Marty got sober here in July 2014 and he also opened Truman House Recovery Home A huge fan of the Glow Run event, Marty is looking forward to hosting the challenge, getting everyone involved in the activities and spreading the message that it is ok to be in recovery and to be fighting addiction.
The Blackout Addiction 5K Glow Run is a family event, which involves getting covered in paint and wearing glow in the dark accessories while walking, jogging or running around a five-kilometer course. From kids to seniors, everyone can enjoy the Glow Run. On the day, there will also be live music provided by DJs and bands and motivational talks. Ticket prices include a t-shirt and a glow necklace.
The proceeds of the Glow Run will go to the Wabash Valley Recovery Alliance, a nonprofit, which provides free addiction recovery support and advice.
As anticipation builds and the second Glow Run draws near, Marty Norman is encouraging the local community in Terre Haute to come together to support the cause, have fun, spend quality time with friends, family and neighbors and raise awareness of addiction recovery.
