This year’s Kasey’s Heart & Soul: Run, Walk & Roll will be the last, according to event organizers Tina and Wayne Ragan.
Registration is underway, with a Feb. 23 deadline to be guaranteed a race t-shirt and goodie bag with pre-registration fee (SEE DOCUMENT BELOW).
“It’s the seventh anniversary of Kasey’s passing and we thought it would be a good time to let this be the final event,” said Tina. “The support we’ve received through the years has been overwhelming. People have become a part of our mission even if they never visited the Lions Camp.”
All proceeds from the event will be used to provide scholarships to graduating campers from the Louisiana Lions Camp and to provide for the needs of hosting the camp.
The event will be held Saturday, March 10 at the NSU Collins Pavilion, featuring music, food and fun for everyone. Race day registration begins at 6:45 am. The 1-mile begins at 8 am, the ROAR begins at 8:30 am and the 5K begins at 8:45 am.
Awards for the 1 mile will be presented at 8:20 am, with awards for the other events at 10:30 am. Chip timing for the 5K and ROAR will be run by SportSpectrum.
“Kasey’s heart and soul has poured into every participant’s life and vice versa,” said Tina. “More than we’ve ever imagined. When you lose a child you want to keep their memory alive and we’ve been able blessed to do that and have it benefit the Lions Camp in the process. We’ve gained so much on an emotional level through this event.”
