Maggies and Aggie Men's Club (AMC) joined together in 2005 to put on a night-time 5k: G.L.O.W. (Giving to Light Others' Way), which takes place annually each February on Texas A&M's campus. Every year, the profit made from G.L.O.W. is split between the two organization's philanthropies. This is Maggies' main fundraising event for our philanthropy- New Horizons. 

New Horizons is a non-profit agency that provides counseling and specialized treatment to children and families throughout Texas. For 45 years, they have been helping children who are suffering from emotional trauma due to abuse and neglect. Their mission is to provide an environment where children and families are able to heal and grow through caring relationships, unconditional love, and acceptance. New Horizons seeks to create a positive, healthy relationship with each child in the hopes of healing their past hurts. Through doing this, they can set children on a path of hope to a better future in becoming a product citizen of society.

New Horizons runs off donations, but many donors never get to see the facility, much less meet the children. Maggies has been given the special opportunity to visit the New Horizons Ranch & Center once a semester to spend time with the kids currently living there. It is our real interactions with the kids at New Horizons that makes our efforts with G.L.O.W. so much more rewarding.
