Annual ‘Glow Run’ lights the night to help Scarlett Rope Project
JACKSON, Tenn.-Dozens take part in this year’s ‘Glow Run’ in north Jackson, Tuesday night, shining a light in Liberty Park.
Proceeds from this year’s run are going to help the work of the Scarlett Rope Project, a non-profit designed to help women.
Participants told WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News a little more about their reason to run.
“This year, we are benefiting the Scarlett Rope Project, which is a local non-profit. And what it does is they work with the local police department and it allows them to rehabilitate women who are caught up in sex trafficking and prostitution,” said Jinny Ballard, organizer of the Glow Run.
Runners started at Liberty Park and raced down Channing Way. Participants ended the night with an awards ceremony and celebration.
The event was sponsored by Leadership Jackson, which chooses a different local organization to support each year.
