The Sparkle Run

The reason we’re here

The Sparkle Run was founded as a way to remember Erin Moomey, a girl who’s life was cut short by Leukemia in 2013. After Erin’s passing the idea for The Sparkle Run came about and raised over $30,000 in it’s first year. Through it’s success this amazing 5k walk & run ensured that Erin’s life would always be remembered and in her rememberence many lives would be changed for better.

Our progress

We have accomplished so much in such a short period of time. This is all thanks to our wonderful participants, volunteers, and sponsors. This incredible support system keeps Erin’s memory alive and it keeps The Sparkle Run going!

Every mile run is a life changed.

Your participation in The Sparkle Run gives us the ability to continue changing lives. Whether it be donating to local communities, foundations, or other wonderful causes our proceeds always go towards making the world a better place in Erin’s honor. Having the ability to change lives while keeping Erin’s memory alive is why we’re here and what truly makes us sparkle!
