Light Up the Night 5K Benefits Western Carolina Rescue Ministries
Aug 7 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Carrier Park w/ online option

The 2nd Annual Light Up the Night 5K is set for Friday, August 7th at Carrier Park, Asheville, North Carolina and this year the nighttime charity run means more than ever. We want to send a HUGE thank you to the key sponsors who are helping to make this event happen: AdventHealth, Hensley Cloninger Law Firm and Owle Construction. Proceeds from this event directly benefit the Western Carolina Rescue Ministries, which exists to serve the homeless, poor and addicted populations of Western North Carolina.

 

Since COVID-19 hit our community in March, Western Carolina Rescue Ministries (WCRM) has served double the amount of individuals in need with hot meals, and has seen a nearly 200 percent increase in grocery support.

iDaph Events is proud to help support the Western Carolina Rescue Ministries by presenting the 2nd Annual Light Up the Night 5k: A fundraising, glow-in-the-dark, nighttime, walk/run event that welcomes all people regardless of ability, race, color, ethnicity, gender or faith. New for this year: A 5K Virtual Run/Walk that can be completed ANYWHERE.

Last year the run started at WCRM in downtown Asheville and wound through the streets of Montford. It was a huge success, raising over $7,000 to help combat homelessness in our local area thanks to the support of our community members, runners and members of WCRM.

Although the fundraiser is being postponed, the Flat Rock Backpack Program will continue to

adults and children under 12) are still being sold by calling 828-693-9783.
Attendees receive one hand-crafted bowl per ticket holder (all donated by area potters) and a

the Parish Hall at The Episcopal Church of St. John in the Wilderness, 1905 Greenville Hwy,
Flat Rock. Three seating times are offered at 12:30pm, 5pm and 6pm.
For the fourth year, local pottery artists are firing their kilns to help hungry
children in the greater Flat Rock area.
EMPTY BOWLS, a community meal benefitting the Flat Rock Backpack Program, will take place inside the Parish
Hall at The Episcopal Church of St. John in the Wilderness, 1905 Greenville Hwy, Flat Rock.
There are three seatings with suggested reservations, 12:30pm, 5pm and 6pm.
Tickets are $25 per person or $50 for a family of two adults and children under 12 years old.
Each ticket includes one hand-crafted bowl (all donated by area potters) and a soup-based meal
(a variety of soups, breads and desserts).
Tickets will be available beginning Monday, March 2 at St. John in the Wilderness Parish House Office, from Backpack team members or at the door on the day of the event.
Please join us for this fun community event. Donations are gratefully accepted throughout the
year.
