The Ark In The Dark Firefly 5K: Run to End Youth Homelessness and Trafficking

Fifth Annual Run To Support The Ark Services for Youth

NEW THIS YEAR: Silent Auction!

It's BACK and even better than last year! Mark your calendars and plan to join us on 8.17.19 @ 8 PM on the grounds of Hackett Catholic Prep! 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to support The Ark Services for Youth, providing essential services to homeless youth and families in crisis across southwest Michigan.

Get your glow on at the event -- dress in anything that glows in the dark OR looks like a firefly -- and win a great prize in our costume contest!  This family-friendly event isn't just for runners -- we invite everyone to come walk, jog, sprint, or crawl the 5K course to support The Ark!

The Highlights:

  • New-and-improved course (part trail) filled with lights and excitement.
  • New Silent Auction -- bid to win great prizes, baskets, and events and support The Ark!  Something for everyone!!
  • Delicious "camp-themed" snacks after you run -- think hot dogs, s'mores, and more!
  • Enjoy a float at our delicious root beer tent!
  • Great music, great costumes, and a great atmosphere for families!
  • Special team and family rates make it affordable for all.Learn more about Catholic Charities, The Ark, and what we do.  You can even take a tour of The Ark.
  • And, of course, there is a darn cool T-shirt included in your registration fees!
