The Fayetteville-Cumberland Glow Fest: A Fun Run


The Fayetteville-Cumberland Youth Council (FCYC) is a youth-led organization which serves as a voice for the youth while it works to better its community: the Fayetteville-Cumberland area.  The organization’s name embodies the partnership between both the city of Fayetteville and county of Cumberland. Such a grand union between the administrations is a model of the cooperation and progress the organization hopes to incite. The FCYC is appreciative of the support it has received from its founders, and wishes to demonstrate the abilities of the organization to coordinate a community-wide event that will raise awareness and funds for current and future FCYC-sponsored events.


On September 16, 2017 the Fayetteville-Cumberland Youth Council will host the Second  “Glow Fest: RUN/WALK/SKIP. FCYC urges everyone to “Spark the Change” in their community. Participating in the Glow Fest affirms your support of the youth in your community and the change they work towards.
