Laps of Light 2015

Sunday, October 11, 2015
Conemaugh Township Memorial Stadium

The eighth annual Laps of Light Benefit Walk will be held on Sunday, October 11, 2015. This year Laps of Light will come back home and be held at the Conemaugh Township Memorial Stadium. Gates will open at 3:30 pm and the walk will begin at 4:30 pm.

An annual evening of fun and excitement, Laps of Light is a walk in which anyone can participate without special training. All are welcome to participate!

Join family and friends as we promote awareness of and inclusion for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and also to raise money for Camp PARC and its summer programs.



Prior to the event, participants are encouraged to collect donations to support their participation in Laps of Light. Simply registering and showing up on Walk Day will raise awareness, but it’s the fundraising dollars that help us fund Camp PARC and its programs. Please note that contributions collected are a one-time donation based on participating in the walk, it is not based on number of laps or time walked. We will award the highest three individuals and teams who raise the most money.

The day of the event consists of participants walking laps on the track, while also enjoying food, entertainment and activities for all ages and abilities.

Laps of Light was developed by the St. David's Lutheran Church 5th and 6th grade Sunday School Class in 2008 as a way to support Camp PARC and learn about serving others. What was started as a simple walk among children wanting to make a difference, has transformed into a community-wide event with an anticipated 1,000 walkers to join this year.

We are looking for individual walkers and teams. (Teams are comprised of 10 or more individual registered walkers.) Children, young adults and adults with mental disabilities, family members, friends, healthcare professionals, corporate teams and members of the community - All are welcome to participate! Laps of Light provides an uplifting and memorable experience for all participants and enriches the lives of all involved. Organize a team from your workplace, school, or community or simply participate with your family. Register at the links below.

We are delighted to have you be a part of Laps of Light 2015!
