Annual Run For Kids’ Sake 5k Run/Walk & 1 Mile Fun Run was held Sat. Sept. 8, 2012, at Kiroli Park in West Monroe. This is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ only fundraising event each year, and so the proceeds will help hundreds of kids throughout Ouachita, Lincoln, Richland, Morehouse, and Franklin Parishes stay in school and out of trouble!Participants received a number of prizes and enjoyed some fun activities at the race for runners and their guests.
Please thank all the sponsors and participants who made this year's Run such a success! All funds raised will resonate in the lives and hearts of children throughout the region! Proceeds help Big Brothers Big Sisters match more children with carefully screened, trained mentors. BBBS’s one-to-one youth mentoring has a real and positive impact on children and their futures – plus their families, schools, and communities.
