A Katrina Run/Walk
On Saturday June 24th, K-HEAF (Katrina Higher Education Assistance Fund) will hold a 5K Run/Walk in Audubon Park. The KATRINA 5K Run/Walk is in support of Higher Education in the city of New Orleans. The funds raised from this event will help support our institutions of higher learning, many of which are struggling very hard to maintain their presence in this city. When you register for the race, you can choose which college you would like your funds to go toward. You can choose from any of the following:
• Delgado Community College
• Dillard University
• Loyola University
• Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center – New Orleans
• Our Lady of Holy Cross College
• Southern University of New Orleans
• Tulane University
• University of New Orleans
• Xavier University
I will be running in support of UNO – one of the many schools I have managed to drop out of over the years. Come join me in support of whatever school you want. There is an unofficial competition to see which school gets the most support.
This is a National day of support, so if you can not make it out to the run/walk, you are encouraged to help out by registering from wherever you are located.
