Join us to be a part of Santa Clarita's premier night run/walk at the annual Be The Light 5K in Valencia, California. Each year the greater Southern California community of runners and walkers come together to support youths in recovery through the A Light of Hope charity, to show them that we are here for them and together we can make a positive impact on their lives.

Why "Be the Light"?

We're taking a stand against the devastation caused by youth substance abuse and other self-destructive behaviors by raising much-needed funds to support the work of A Light of Hope in our community. A portion of entry proceeds goes to support A Light of Hope.
