Posted at 7:03 AM, Nov 12, 2018

The 16th Annual Camellia Crossing: Acadiana’s Gleaux Run is fast approaching.

KATC’s Scott Brazda was lighting up the early morning on GMA with details on how you can sign up to run on Thanksgiving Eve.

Those interested in participating can still sign up for the run which will take place at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, November 21 in Lafayette.

The Gleaux Run invites families to come together on this Thanksgiving Eve to help support families fighting cancer here in Acadiana. The nighttime 1-mile walk and 5K run will take place on Camellia Boulevard. Runners will sport glow-in-the-dark gear as they walk and run down the route. Participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible with their “gleaux gear.”
