Come and get your glow on. Join us as we glow in the dark along the streets of Portland and the path of the private golf course. This night run-walk will take you onto the North Shore Country Club where you will have a view of Corpus Christi Bay during your run or walk. Your participation in our Miles for Meals Glow helps raise needed funds for the Food Bank. Don’t want to go but just want to glow; become a donor only and you can still get the shirt.
