The Huntley 158 Education Foundation hosted its second annual Huntley Hootenanny Glow 5K on Sept. 7. Some 2,500 individuals took part in the run/walk, and hundreds more came to enjoy the festivities on the Square.

The Huntley High School theater tech crew provided a neon-lit dance party on the square after the race, and downtown restaurants served large crowds all night.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Prizes were awarded for fastest male and female runners, as well as "glowiest" participants and "glowiest" house along the racecourse. The event was made possible through the volunteer efforts of the foundation, the school district, village of Huntley, Huntley Police Department, Huntley Fire Protection District, and numerous community members.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Huntley 158 Education Foundation's student scholarship and teacher grant programs. The Foundation annually awards competitive scholarships to students graduating from Huntley High School and helps to fund educational programs and projects to enhance the learning experiences of Huntley 158 students.
