Life University Run The Lights Of Life Event

Life University News


Start a new holiday tradition, or return this year, and Run the Lights of LIFE. The 5K run starts at 5:00 p.m., just before sunset, and takes in the beautiful campus of Life University during our annual holiday light show. After the run, stay and enjoy the holiday festivities, with caroling, s’mores and hot cocoa, a holiday spirit contest, food and music, and much more, including the Lights of LIFE.

And this year, Life University is partnering with Make-A-Wish Georgia for the event with a goal to raise $10,000 to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening health conditions.
