The Glow Run for the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum, that started off at Rotary Hall down at Woodlawn Park, was a huge success.

Amber Anderson one of the organizers, "We had 22 participants, this was our first year running it, and it was a misty kind of cold day, so we were really pleased with the turnout."

The lucky winner to walk away with a prize for the best dressed was, "The best dressed is actually going to Tim Perry, who dressed up as a glow in the dark clown." 

As for the funding Anderson says, "So this goes right back into all of our programming that we do for the community, such as family art, senior programming, outreach programming for youth at risk. We really try to put it back into the community that gave it to us."

"I really like the energy that people brought to it, thank for all the people who did dress up and compete. It's what really made it fun, and just a huge thank you to all the volunteer sponsors and all the community that joined in on it." Anderson was very thankful for all the help going into the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum.
