Family Fun Walk & Costume Contest
The 2nd Annual Glow Walk will be held in the early evening at 5:00pm on October 25, at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey. Participants will receive glow necklaces to help “shine the light on epilepsy” and to light the way. Children and adults are encouraged to wear costumes, as there will be trick or treating at the rest stops along the walk route. Remember to dress to impress, because there is a catwalk costume contest immediately following the Family Fun Walk.

Sanctioned 5K Run
The sanctioned 5k run will be held at 6:15pm, where participants will be treated to a beautiful, panoramic view of the New York City skyline during the final moments of daylight and through the evening hours.

In addition to the walk/run, the event will also feature live music, glow in the dark games and activities, informational exhibits and more. All activities will be free to families who register. We hope to see you there!
