The Ark In The Dark Firefly 5K

Third Annual Run To Support The Ark Services for Youth

It's BACK and even better than last year! Mark your calendars and plan to join us on August 19th at 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. 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
* Delicious "camp-themed" snacks after you run -- think hot dogs, smores, and more!
* 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
* And, of course, there is a darn cool T-shirt included in your registration fees!

This year's event is also being held in honor and memory of Jill Jilek, an amazing supporter, advocate, and volunteer for Catholic Charities.

The Details:
Registration is NOW OPEN. Packet pick-up will be August 18th from 5-7 at Hackett Catholic Prep's lower parking lot (just to the west of the school) or the day of the event from 6-7:30 PM. We are also looking for event sponsors -- if you are interested, give us a call at 269-381-9800.

Get ready for the third annual Ark In The Dark Firefly 5K -- we can't wait to see you there!

Many Thanks To Our Event Sponsors!
