HAMMOND – Trot for Troops, a 5K run to raise funds for the organization Support Our War Heroes, will be held at Southeastern Louisiana University’s Strawberry Stadium Saturday, Nov. 19.
Sponsored by the university’s Sports Management Association, the event will start with registration at 7:30 a.m. followed by the race at 8:30 a.m. Costs are $12 if pre-registered and for veterans and $15 on the day of the race. Free T-shirts are being offered to the first 50 people who register.
“The race will raise money for a great organization and provide us with valuable field experience in putting on events,” said Michael Dupre, president of SMA.
The SMA and students in the Kinesiology 366 class hold a 5k run every semester to raise money for various causes. This is the second year that Support Our War Heroes was chosen to be the recipient of the fundraiser.
The event will include a raffle, music and entertainment, free food and drinks and an awards ceremony for the winners of the race. For more information, call the Kinesiology and Health Studies Department at 985-549-2129 or Dupre at Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org.
