Ready. Sentence. Gleaux!
We’ve heard those words for 19 years now as runners and walkers across Acadiana light up Camellia Boulevard in the fight against cancer.
The 19th annual Camellia Crossing: Acadiana’s Gleaux Run takes place on Thanksgiving Eve when participants light up the sky by wearing glowing things. This is a different kind of 5K. Normally walks/runs take place during the day but this fantastic event takes place at night as participants either run the 5km or walk the 1 mile.
All attendees will receive a Gleaux-in-the-Dark Camellia Crossing t-shirt, Gleaux accessories and a food and drink wristband for the Official Camellia Crossing After-Party.
Teams of family, friends and associates will come together to support Miles Perret Cancer Services in continuing its mission of helping families fight, survive and live with cancer. Money raised through the event stays in Acadiana.
As you can see from the schedule below, Camellia Boulevard closes at 5:30pm and doesn’t reopen until 8:30pm
Camellia Crossing is just one of many fundraisers for Miles Perret Cancer Services, which include Games Across Acadiana, the MPCS Triathlon and the Benefit Concert, which has featured such big names in music as Clint Black, Martina McBride, Darius Rucker and Randy Travis.
