2019 Light Up The Corners Glow Run was “the best race and our most successful fundraiser yet,” according to Amy Massey, Race Coordinator.  “This fun, family-friendly event has become a Peachtree Corners tradition shared by more and more every year.”

The annual event in Peachtree Corners has touch lives of so many in the community who need it “most by enabling them to benefit from the life-changing programs and services at the Fowler YMCA.”

In her e-blast to supporters, Massey said, “This event is a team effort in every sense. Many thanks to the more than 150 volunteers who donate their time, talent, and energy so 100% of your entry fees can go directly to the Why It Matters campaign at the Fowler YMCA.”

About the sponsors, she wrote, “This could not be a successful fundraiser without the generous support of our sponsors who help defray our costs through donations of money, food, gift cards, and/or time and resources. If you get a chance, please thank them for caring about – and giving back to – their community.” (Sponsor links below)
