CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Neon colors lit up the night sky on Saturday during the 10th annual Glo and Go Night fun run.

People who participated wore glo-sticks and costumes as they walked along the trails at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.

Members of the American Association of University Women were there to show their support.

And it wasn't just adults participating.

Children and pets alike joined in the fund-raising event.

"We're hoping to raise money for the Y, which is a wonderful part of our community," said AAUW member Sylvia Rendon.

Funds raised at the fun run will be given to the Corpus Christi YWCA.


YWCA Corpus Christi will be hosting its 10th Annual Glo & Go Night Fun Run: 5K Run, Two Mile Walk.

It’s happening Saturday night at the TAMUCC Hike & Bike trail. Organizers say anyone can take part.

“Everyone is welcome,” YWCA board member Valeria Ford said. “Invite your family, friends. There is a 5K run and a two-mile walk. Everyone, runners and walkers are welcome, stroller are welcome, bring your children and pets on leashes are also welcome.”

Money raised will go to support multiple programs at the organization, including YWTeen.

“It's a leadership camp to teach girls to be themselves, to be confident," Ford said. "Many speakers come and I say we try to teach the girls, but in fact, I learn so much from the girls and it’s just a wonderful experience."

Check in starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday with the race beginning 8 p.m. rain or shine. Awards for first-place finishers and best costume, , among others, will be presented after the races.

The registration fee for adults is $25 and $10 for kids. The first 150 registrants will receive a t-shirt.
