The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2016

Hello, fellow abolitionists! 


Welcome to the event page for Students Ending Slavery at the University of Maryland's third annual Glow for the Girls 5K/Fun Run! This year's event will be bigger and brighter than ever before with PRIZES, guest speakers, a DJ from Terrapin Beats Society, and lots of glow bracelets!


Join us at the sundial on McKeldin Mall at 8:00pm!


All of the proceeds will benefit the Development and Education Programme for Daughters and Communities Centre (DEPDC). This organization aims to protect children in Thailand who are at a high risk of being trafficked as a result of poverty and social inequality. 

You can learn more about DEPDC and its specific projects by clicking here.


The Details:

  • Registration to run is $15: includes an ethically-sourced t-shirt (for first 50 registrants), plenty of food, and glow sticks! Click the blue REGISTRATION button at the top of this page to register on Eventbrite.
  • If you are unable to attend and would just like to donate to the cause, click the green DONATE button at the top of this page. 
  • We encourage you to start your own fundraiser to reach a personal goal.  The top individual fundraisers will recieve **PRIZES**!
  • Start a group fundraiser: organizations and clubs can sign up together. The top groups will receive *PRIZES*!

Not a runner? Totally cool. You could walk or frollick around the Mall instead, or just consider this a glow dance party with lots of food that will be contributing to the greater good of humanity.
