WIN will bring Hunt and Rockwall Counties awareness events throughout October, ending with our biggest event of the year, WIN's 5K Glow Run and Family Fun Fest. A spirit calendar for October will be available via our website beginning August 1. Please look for our calendar and the many ways you can get involved.


You do not want to miss the fun on October 22, 2022. Beginning at 10:30 am at Harry Myers Park, Women In Need will kick off the Glow Family Fun Fest Day that will culminate with the annual WIN Glow Run, a 5K fun run where everyone is welcome! Whether you have two legs or four legs, join us as we race to end domestic violence.


Plus, you need not worry about how you will attend both Scare on the Square and Glow Family Fun Fest. We are working together to bring you good, clean, and safe family fun from dawn to dusk. Start the day out at Scare on the Square, then come on down to Harry Myers Park to visit the Food Truck and Vendor Fair, catch some live entertainment, an open forum on domestic violence, and end the evening winding down with music from Jackson Crossing
