Memorial Day Observance
The Patrick Wm. Milano Detachment 299, Marine Corps League, will conduct the annual Memorial Day observance for fallen and departed Marines by laying a wreath in the Susquehanna River. The event will happen at 8:00 a.m. with the public invited to attend. It is held on the riverfront at the beginning of Shipoke.

City Island Glow in the Park 5K Run!
A Glow in the Park race will be a social running event themed as the ultimate party run. There will be "obstacles" along the course for runners to conquer. The obstacles will include two foam pits, two glow-water sprays, and two glow-powder dustings. This is all in preparation for the dance party at the end of the race, at which finishers will celebrate to beats spun by a local deejay. The races will take place just after dark for a unique experience with glow colors and lighting. It's the best way to light up the night! The ultimate party fun run! But most importantly, it's the freakin' awesome foam-pits-fluorescent-colors-blacklights-glowing-warpaint-dance-moves night you'll never forget!

City Island Glow in the Park 5K Run!

 

 
When is the race?

The 1st City Island Glow in the Park 5K will be held on City Island on June 28th, 2014!

What is "Glow in the Park"?

A Glow in the Park race will be a social running event themed as the ultimate party run. There will be "obstacles" along the course for runners to conquer. The obstacles will include two foam pits, two glow-water sprays, and two glow-powder dustings. This is all in preparation for the dance party at the end of the race, at which finishers will celebrate to beats spun by a local deejay. The races will take place just after dark for a unique experience with glow colors and lighting. It's the best way to light up the night! The ultimate party fun run! But most importantly, it's the freakin' awesome foam-pits-fluorescent-colors-blacklights-glowing-warpaint-dance-moves night you'll never forget!

What to expect:

YOU will light up the night as you run a 5k – no speed needed!

Before the race, you and your friends will each get a goody bag of glow accessories and paint to adorn yourselves to the height of glowy fashion

Now to brave the seas of foam (industrial machines spewing foam to the beat of some hot music), the rain storm of UV glow water (volunteers will spray a rainbow of glow water as you run past), and the dust cloud of neon powder (volunteers will toss handfuls of neon goodness to make sure you are covered in color and glowing like a champ)!

Once you have triumphantly reached the finish line you will be greeted by a celebratory dance party and a chance to show off your accumulation of glow and your fabulous dance moves.

Enhance your glow experience by renting a blacklight headlight!

Glow in the Park has doubled the foam and will be adding special UV glow tunnels at each of the color stations! We are also including a Glow in the Park t-shirt with every registration received before June 14th! (sign up by June 14th to guarantee your free shirt. Glowers who do not register before t-shirt ordering deadline will not be guaranteed a shirt with their packet, but may have a chance to purchase a t-shirt on the day of the event)

Home Page
Harrisburg River Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, 100% volunteer organization which provides community-based, high quality, cost effective water rescue and emergency services for the residents of the south-central Pennsylvania region that started over 50 years ago.

 
Our Mission: To provide volunteer emergency search and rescue services to persons suffering because of fire, flood, accident or other disaster. These services include water rescue and patrol, dive rescue and recovery, special fire police services, emergency first response services, water-pumping and related services, and fire and rescue services to the public. The Corporation also provides emergency search and rescue equipment and facilities to governmental agencies and other organizations assisting persons in distress, and provides emergency search and rescue services to persons in distress on area waters. The Corporation offers courses that promote safety on area waters, and offers training to the general public and to emergency personnel on boating safety and water rescue.


Our Motto: We would rather save than search.


While there are many water rescue teams in existence, River Rescue, is widely considered one of the best equipped and best trained all-volunteer units in and around the state of Pennsylvania.
