(Branson, Mo. 10-08) The focus on Friday night, November 7th, will be shining on
helping Single Moms at the third annual run/walk at Silver Dollar City to benefit The Caring People. To make it even more unique, the event takes place after park closing during Old Time Christmas, immersing participants in the glow of millions of lights along the pathway of the 5K run/walk.

“Last year we had an overwhelming, sold-out response with over 1284 participants. We’re even more excited about this expanded, Christmas-spirited event this year!” said founder JoDee Herschend of the Caring People, an organization reaching out to hundreds of single mothers in the Ozarks and internationally. JoDee said proceeds will help fund the organization’s Care Groups to work with single mothers and their kids in the Springfield and Branson area.

Run to the Lights, sponsored by Elite Automotive Group and Silver Dollar City, will include a special lighting of the Special Effects Christmas Tree, carolers singing holiday favorites, and Silver Dollar City’s famous Christmas treats. Each participant will receive a long sleeved t-shirt and a day pass to Silver Dollar City that can be used during the remainder of the 2008 season.

Registration is limited to 1,400 participants. For more information, visit www.thecaringpeople.org. Run to the Lights begins at 10:00 p.m. Friday, November 7.
