Don your athletic shoes and get ready for the most spectacular light display in all of West Texas. There are over three million lights that will be lighting the path and helping to raise money for the Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation, Abilene Running Company, and the United Way.

The Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation is an organization that promotes excellence in education for all grades. Everyone who signs up early will receive a special t-shirt designed by a Wylie student. If you have already signed up, pick up your tickets at the Abilene Running Company from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6 or Thursday, December 7. You can also pick them up at the race at least 20 minutes before the Fun Run begins. Cost is $25 per participant.

Prepare for some holiday fun that is three-miles long on the best-lit path in the Lone Star State. The United Way's Winter Lightfest is located at 2250 East North 10th Street in Abilene. For more information about the Fun Run event, contact Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation at 325-660-0292.
