LIGHT UP THE CITY SAGINAW 5K - 2018 Overview
Consumers Energy is proud to present the 1st Annual Light Up The City Saginaw 5K for 2018! Join several participants in running and/or walking USATF sanctioned 5K Saginaw Riverfront Trail/road course! A portion of proceeds from this race go to benefitting the Witness Assistance Program in Saginaw County. We will be racing on a Wednesday night with activities, music, food and fun continuing on Ojibway Island where the 2018 LUTC Community Celebration event is taking place!
This race is being organized as part of the 6th Annual Light Up The City Community Celebration Event with the purpose of encouraging community members and residents to work together helping to create safer neighborhoods and communities by walking the streets and asking neighbors to turn on their porch lights. Since 2013, we have had over 300 Consumers Energy employees volunteer their time, 1509 registered walkers participate and have distributed a total of 6,642 light bulbs throughout our Saginaw communities.
This initiative would not be possible without our partners such as the Michigan State Police, United Way of Saginaw County, Saginaw County Community Mental Health Authority, the City of Saginaw, the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce, the WorkWear Store, Papa John’s, Saginaw Public Schools our local law enforcement and emergency responders, WNEM TV5, our neighborhood associations, residents in the community and many others.
