2019 Retro Glow Event

The 2019 Retro Glow Event benefitting Aurora House Foundation will take place on Saturday, June 8,
2019 at the Mayor Pablo Peña Park, located at 300 North Airport Drive in Weslaco. This year the event is a 2-
in-1 event – a 1-mile Kids Run and a 5K Glow Run. The schedule for the day is:

6:00 PM – 6:30 PM – Costume Contest/Warm Up
6:30 PM – 7:00 PM – 1-Mile Fun Run
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM – 5K Run/Walk

This is an 80’s themed event, and costumes are encouraged. We will have a DJ, Zumba, a photo booth,
other photo ops, sponsor booths, and since the powder paint used for the run is “glow in the dark,” there
will be a black light dance party to continue the fun. Bring your best 80’s costume and come ready for a
good time!

The mission of Aurora House is to provide compassionate end-of-life care for residents of the RGV who face
a terminal diagnosis. Aurora House does not charge for its services and receives no insurance, Medicare or
government funding. We are solely supported by community donations and grants. Proceeds from the event
go to ensure that our residents and their loved ones receive the comfort, support, compassion, and dignity
they deserve.

Entry to the 5K is $25, and runners will get a swag bag, a t-shirt, and a finishing medal. Entry to the 1-mile
Kid’s Fun Run is $20, and runners will get a t-shirt and a finishing medal. For more information on the event,
