The Shine a Light Run will be our 3RD ANNUAL 5K to raise funds for The Porch Light ministry! We continue to grow our awareness with your support through this run and thank you for your continuation to change the lives of young girls. This race will bring light to the darkness that surrounds victims of sex trafficking. This year, we are dressing up in ways that represent our theme of Shining Your Light! Be creative! Some ideas to this theme are listed below. We want you to have fun and at the same time help us to be sincere in sharing the change to bring about in the lives of these children. Join us in the walk / run and be a light in the dark in your Lakeland community! The race will begin at Florida Southern College and continue around Lake Hollingsworth to end there. Registration starts at 5:30pm and race start time is 6:30pm.
