Event description

Description

Choose from the glow disc tournament, 5K fun run/walk, or 1 mile fun run/walk. Arrive by 7 to get signed in and collect your glow disc (for tournament participants) or bib (for runners), and join us for a glow party at the end of the run. All participants will be entered in our raffle, and have a chance to win one of many great bat-themed prizes!

*The Glow Disc Tournament may end after 11:00 p.m.

Funds raised through this event support the efforts of the Tonkawa Tribal Bat Conservation Project. Bats in Kay County are threatened by habitat loss and wind turbines, which kill twice as many bats as they do birds. Throughout North America, many bat species face population declines and extinction resulting from the spread of white-nose syndrome (WNS, a fungus introduced to the continent just over ten years ago). The Tonkawa Tribal Bat Conservation Project works to help bats through a combination of outreach and education, research, and habitat restoration and improvement. Bats save American farmers somewhere between $3.7 billion and $54 billion dollars per year in pest control and provide other vital ecosystem services, including pollination.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can email alamb@tonkawatribe.com with questions or to request your shirt size if you register before October 2nd. This is also the best contact if you would like more information about sponsoring the event by donating a raffle or tournament prize.
