Run With The Nuns 5K, Charity Ride and Cook Off

 
Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 7:30 am
Lake Charles Civic Center, 900 Lakeshore Drive, Lake Charles, 70601

The Run with the Nuns Charity Ride, 5K Run and Cook-Off is an annual fundraiser focused on Hospital needs. Last year and this year the event has been dedicated in memory of Coach Max Caldarera, a special member of our community who passed away last year as a result of a cardiac event.  The proceeds from this event will specifically help complete funding for a new Hybrid Surgical Suite, which mirrors that of the nation’s most prestigious heart programs and lefts.  It will give our community access to the absolute best in cardiac care, including top cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons as well as state-of-the-art technology.  

This event has traditionally included a motorcycle/jeep ride and a rice and gravy cook-off.  This year we are adding a 5K run for the athletes in our community who really want to participate in this event.  With the addition of the run, we anticipate this year’s Run with the Nuns will be our biggest event yet! 

The Run will be the first of three events taking place during our annual Run with the Nuns Celebration.  There will also be a motorcycle/jeep ride and a Rice & Gravy Cook-Off.  Run participants can join us for lunch at around noon, along with the Rice & Gravy People’s Choice taste-testing.  Door prizes will be given away and awards will be given for the Rice & Gravy entries during the lunch hour.  The event will conclude around 1:00 p.m. https://stpatrickfoundation.org/events/run-with-the-nuns/
