By participating in the Runway to Hope Sparkle & Shine, you will receive a t-shirt, race bib, medal, and some glitter, so you can still get your sparkle on! If you plan on competing in the race, you will need to register by September 21st in order to receive your race materials on time! If you have a child wanting to participate in the Kids Run, they will receive a race bib and some glitter!

Don't forget to take photos and tag @runwaytohope in your Sparkle & Shine gear! Here are some of the hashtags you can use: #sparkleandshine5k, #pediatriccancerawarenessmonth, #pediatriccancer, #runwaytohope, #gogold, and #hopeisnotcanceled, so that we can see your post. The photos with the most sparkle and shine will be featured on our Runway to Hope social media story! 

Thank you for supporting Runway to Hope and our mission to support children battling pediatric cancer in Central Florida while seeking a cure. Happy Running!
