Glow Run 5K

Glow Run 5K

The Glow Run is a 5K event to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Join the Wilkes University Office of Residence Life for the 7th annual Glow Run to promote unity and awareness towards suicide prevention. Mental health means a lot to us and this motivates us to raise awareness and move our passion for suicide prevention out into the community.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a mission to save as many lives as they can and bring hope to the lives affected by suicide. By 2025, the foundation aspires to drop the annual suicide rate by 20%. AFSP raises awareness, funds scientific research, and provides aid and resources to those affected by suicide. The organization started in 1987 due to the alarming rise of youth suicides over the decades. Being the first national, non-profit organization dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide, the group has now connected and reached out to tens of thousands of suicide survivors, those at risk for suicide, and those who have lost loved ones to suicide.
