If you enjoy a good run for a great cause then sign up to run in the 2nd Annual Holden’s Hope Forever Race! All proceeds benefit families in Southwest Louisiana as well as Louisiana NICU units. The mission of Holden’s Hope is to support families of children who have long medical stays in the NICU and families who are coping with miscarriages, stillbirths or the loss of an infant. This race is a special one as it’s also a memory walk/run for families who have lost an infant or wish to honor the memory of a baby. Form a team as a family or as a business, come as an individual or gather up your friends to race because your efforts will provide financial support for end of life and/or medical expenses as well as emotional support to the families served through Holden’s Hope!
FUN FOR ALL! There will be fun for the whole family including music, food, fun jumps, face painting and a balloon release ceremony to conclude the event! For registration information and a schedule of events please visit the organization’s FACEBOOK PAGE: Holden’s Hope.
March 31st 2019 is the deadline to be guaranteed a t-shirt with your registration.
Post-race ceremony activities: We encourage friends and family to come out and support our angel parents even if you do not plan to walk or run in the race. With the purchase of a $5 wristband attendees of all ages can enjoy food, drinks and post-race activities. The wristband can be purchased the morning of the event at the registration tent.
