The IU chapter of Timmy Global Health’s annual Glow Run is expected to move to a later date due to inclement weather.

Though the original event was set for Thursday, because of expected rain and thunderstorms, the run will most likely be rescheduled to April 25, fundraising director Shahin Saberi, junior, said.

The one-mile run will start in Dunn Meadow and take runners throughout campus. Tickets can be bought in advance or at the event for $15.

The event is organized by Timmy Global Health, a nonprofit working toward increased access to health care throughout the world. Event proceeds will help support health care access to rural communities in Guatemala.

Event participants receive free Jimmy John’s sandwiches, glow paint and, if over the age of 21, free entrance to Brothers Bar and Grill after the race ends, Saberi said.

Saberi said events like this are important because it brings awareness to local and global health issues. He recommends people get involved in global health if they are interested in joining a group of students passionate about making the world a better place.
