Support neighbors through Bridge Run
The United Way’s 14th Annual Bridge Run/Walk and Festival is back this year with new and improved after-run activities.
The event is a great way for parishioners to help out the community while also supporting their own health and well-being.
Besides the exercise benefits of running and walking, the after-run free podiatry exams will help participants keep their feet in good medical condition.
The run/walk is also the only chance that people have to cross the Hale Boggs Bridge by foot since it is closed to pedestrians.
Going over the bridge by foot gives a view of the entire parish that is unforgettable and worth the $30 entrance fee all on its own.
If that’s not enough to convince residents to participate, consider that the fee goes right back into St. Charles Parish by helping friends and neighbors during these rough economic times and the ones ahead.
The United Way has been working to improve the lives of those right here in St. Charles Parish since 1955 by targeting education, income and health issues.
In addition to the great cause that the United Way represents, they are also inviting the entire community to attend post-run festival - not just race participants.
The festival will be a great gathering of support for the community and for the runners, complete with free food, kids’ activities and entertainment.
While it is great that the United Way decides to include the entire community in this event each year, it is up to residents to participate in the run/walk and give back to the community, both monetarily and by showing support for the event in strong numbers.
