MONROE, La (KNOE) - 100% of the race proceeds will benefit local hospice patients in our community who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and typically have a life expectancy of six months or less. These families often need assistance to pay for non-hospice related expenses that they can't afford during this difficult time in their life, such as rent, groceries, utilities, and even funeral expenses. We raised over $10,000 at our race last year and hope to double that amount this year.

The theme is Celebrate Your Heros and your hero can be anyone in your life that is important to you. A grandfather, mother, father, etc. However, we are recognizing our first responders as our heroes. Our firefighters, police officers, medical responders, etc.
