Great Pumpkin Run for Research
Reduce the risk of chronic illnesses like cancer and heart disease
Saturday, October 26, 2013 @8 am
Dress up, join the fun and help your loved ones with cancer! The Great Pumpkin Run for Research is a 5K run and health walk, a half-mile kid's run, healthy lifestyle exhibits, face painting, Halloween costume contests and a pumpkin decorating contest for kids.
Race begins at 8am for one of the largest runs put on by Sportspectrum. Great prizes for contests and teams with the largest numbers of registered runners win cash prizes of $250, $150 and $100. Pre-registration for the 5K is $20 through Oct. 25 and $25 race day. The half-mile kid's run is $15 through Oct. 25 and $20 race day. Register at Sportspectrum or www.sportspectrumusa.com. For information call 318.813.1056.
All proceeds from the Pumpkin Run stay in Shreveport to support cancer research at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center at LSU Health Shreveport. Fundraising projects allow Feist-Weiller Cancer Center to grant Idea Awards for cancer researchers to develop their ideas. Scientists have leveraged $1.3 million raised locally into $9.4 million in national grants, a 9:1 return on investment.
