Glowing Reviews for Laker Glow!

Thank you to the hundreds of runners and walkers who participated in the Laker Glow 5k run and 1-mile fun walk on May 11. The fun and healthy event raised funds for MPS scholarships. Beginning and ending at MPS, the race was followed by a lively party on the patio and in the cafeteria.

Thank you to our main sponsors AHN/St. Vincent, Mercyhurst University, and UPMC Health Plan. Thank you also to PNC Bank and our media sponsors: WJET/Fox/, Classy 100, and Lamar Advertising.

The wonderful folks at Smith Provision provided the best hot dogs in the world, Mobile DJ’s Lisa and Sarah Keating ’19 provided the music, along with live music from Applebee and the Scarves.

Our fantastic volunteers were led by race director Michelle Intrieri. Thank you to everyone involved!

If you couldn’t be there but would still like to support MPS scholarships and other programs and services that benefit our students, please donate to the Mercyhurst Prep Fund at Thank you!
