About This Activity

CARC is hosting our first annual “Running for Opportunities” 5K and Fun Run. This exciting event will be held on September 19, 2015 and will be a fun way to raise awareness and funding to support the various services and programs CARC provides to over 400 individuals with disabilities living in Southwest Louisiana.

CARC is a private non-profit, organization and our mission is to provide opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to prosper in all facets of developmental and independent functions. Currently we provide living arrangements for approximately 100 individuals and over 200 individuals have found employment through CARC’s services.

Proceeds of the run will benefit CARC’s Vocational and Community Programs, designed to assist each person to function maximally in the least restricted and most self-directed manner, increasing independence and inclusion in the community.

Event details and schedule

This will be a chip timed run. The run begins on Borde Du Lac Drive behind the Lake Charles Civic Center at 8am. Packet pickup and race day registration will be from 7-7:45am.
