The Fond du Lac Family YMCA is changing up their family fun run this year! The Agnesian HealthCare Color Burst 5K is out of color and glowing in excitement over the new event....taking place AFTER DARK and moving to July 29th.

The Agnesian HealthCare Ready, Set, Glow is a neon, nighttime 5K walk/run event for the entire family. Participants come dressed in their favorite glow-gear & event t-shirt, then join the pre-run festivities as they “get their glow on” at our sponsored neon swag stations. Waves of runners will begin the run just as the sun sets, making their way around a music-filled, double loop in Lakeside Park. They will stop along the way at black light GLOW ZONES, collecting more glow swag, and getting the full effect of their neon glow. Everyone is encouraged to stick around for the Foam Finale Finish and illuminating post-run celebration.Individual and group prizes will be awarded to the “Best in Glow.”

Create lasting memories with your family and friends, and light the way to the finish line!
