The Lightin’ It Up For Linemen 5K Run and One-Mile Walk will take place on November 19, 2016 at Craig Ranch Park in North Las Vegas. This event is to memorialize our fallen electrical line workers, and care for the families who have lost or are impacted by a severe injury of a loved one in the line of duty.
Families from across the nation will be coming together for this special event, and those who have lost a family member will light up water stations along the race route in memory of their fallen linemen.
The entry fee is $35 for those who sign up by October 16, and all proceeds will go directly to the National Sisterhood United of Journeymen Linemen (NSUJL). Register online here.
