First Ever Glow in the Garten 3K Fun Run/Walk Presented by North Shore Bank Was a Success

Kenosha, WI – September 17, 2018 – This past Saturday, the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha, Kenosha County and Petrifying Springs Biergarten teamed up to put on the first ever Glow in the Garten 3K Fun Run/Walk, a glow-in-the-dark themed race. Over 375 runners and walkers participated and came decked out in glow-in-the-dark costumes and accessories.

The event began with a youth race for kids ages 4 – 12. At dusk, the official race began. The race started and ended at the Petrifying Springs Biergarten, and wound through Petrifying Springs Park and Golf Course. The course was illuminated with light-up and glow in the dark decorations.

At the finish line, runners could enjoy a beverage, face painting, a balloon artist, vendors, a photo booth and a live band at the Biergarten. Trophies were awarded to the first place male and female winners, and the “glowiest” male and female contestants, as part of the CCB Technology Best Dressed contest.

“The Glow in the Garten 3K capped off our second event in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha,” said Mike Grab of Petrifying Springs Biergarten. “We couldn’t have been happier with the turnout for the event and want to thank all of the people who participated. These events are not only fun but the funds go to such a great cause. We look forward to partnering on many more exciting events with the Boys & Girls Club in the future. We would also like to extend a thanks to the staff and volunteers for their hard work!”
