Gildan Glow Run Lights Up the Night for Communities in Latin America

Gildan Glow Run lights up the night for communities in Latin America

The brightest night in the city once again raised a total of more than $100,000 for communities in Honduras, Nicaragua and Dominican Republic. The Glow Run, a 5k run and fundraising event, united more than 12,000 Gildan employees and their families at the end of 2017 to celebrate a night of physical activity and entertainment in support of their communities.

The funds raised will be donated to local projects including the neo-natal unit at the Leonardo Martínez Valenzuela Hospital in Honduras, CONANCA, an organization that provides support to children with cancer in Nicaragua and the Caridad Misionera Home, a residence providing shelter and assistance to underprivileged girls in the Dominican Republic.  Over the last 5 years, the Glow Run has raised over $370,0000 for communities in Latin America.
