This Friday's race is not your typical 5k...

This Friday starting at 6, it's the American Cancer Society's "Glow Back Bay 5K." A brand new event, it's designed to bring people together to light up the night in honor of cancer survivors, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money for the American Cancer Society.

I've run a few 5ks, but never one quite like this. I just might sign up!
