LeukemiaTexas named the official beneficiary of The Electric Run

LeukemiaTexas named the official beneficiary of The Electric Run
Inaugural 5K set for Saturday January 19, 2013

 GET READY DALLAS! The Electric Run™ is coming to Dallas this week and it’s going to be much more than a 5K run. It truly is a show! Imagine Fair Park glowing and buzzing to one million watts of light and sound, which will turn the course into an electric wonderland. This isn’t an amateur production. Stage designers from Coachella, Dreamworks animators and talented artists are behind developing this experience.

Dan Hill, founder of the Electric Run™ says, “We want to do more than produce another running event. We want to create a show and an experience that willtake people’s breath away”. Participants will join in the show by lighting up with glow sticks. Teams called “centipedes” can participate in the event by given a LED-light rope that will be used to attach themselves to the other members of the centipede. In addition, every participant will be given an LED bracelet, glow necklace, glow sunglasses and an event shirt. It is important to note that the fun and the beats don’t end at the finish line. There will be a finish celebration with DJs to keep you moving. This is family-friendly event for all ages with kids under seven getting to run for free.

“LeukemiaTexas is excited to participate as The Electric Run’s 1st beneficiary for Dallas. With partners like the Dallas Mavericks and our friends at The FairPark, we know it will be the city’s most memorable run because of the“electricity”, courage, and strength of our leukemia patients we serve”. Mandy O’Neill, CEO for LeukemiaTexas.

Volunteer spots are still available for the event. Contact the LeukemiaTexas office today to get involved.
