Event Details:
The 4th annual Snap to a Cure will be collaboration between Snap Fitness of Maurice and Kalix James Broussard’s family. The event will take place on Sunday October 25, 2020 at North Vermilion High School. A portion of the funds will benefit the Kalix James Broussard Memorial Scholarship Fund. In addition, this year’s Snap to a Cure will team up with Vermillion Catholic High School and Whittington Veterinary Clinic. 
On January 27th 2020, Kalix and his two dogs were heading to work at WVC. In a blink of an eye, two vehicles hit head on causing Kalix, his dogs, and the other vehicle’s driver to gain their wings. This tragic event has left an everlasting impact on his family, friends, and community. Kalix was a beloved employee at WVC and a VC Eagle for 4 years graduating in 2019.
Kalix was the Screaming Eagle’s running back from 2016 to 2019. He was known for his toughness as an athlete, but more importantly, as an amazing person. The Snap to a Cure 5k will give the community and Kalix’s family a day of remembrance and celebration of his short life here on Earth.
Food, music, and fun for the kids will be provided for all participants. Not a runner? No problem. Starting at 8, the one mile event will begin. This event can be a warm up for the 5k race, or a simple walk with family and friends to honor Kalix’s life. The mile will be 4 laps around the NVHS track.  Shortly after, the 5K race will begin. The race will begin on the track, go to the streets of Maurice and back on the track for the finish.
Packet Pickup will be at Snap Fitness Maurice on Friday, Oct. 23rd from 3 pm to 6:30 pm and Saturday, Oct. 24th at the Whittington Vet Clinic in Abbeville from 10 am to 4 pm during the "Anything Over Rice Festival".
