Join us in Honoring ALL Veterans on this day of remembrance.
This is an opportunity to show our gratitude to the men and women who have served, and those currently serving in our armed forces.

Register here for our 5K/10K Run/Walk event benefiting the U.S. Air Force Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) Association.
This non-profit provides family members of deceased or disabled TACP veterans financial and moral support and assistance. Examples of such can be found at

As a combat unit of the USAF, TACP Airmen are an elite, vital liaison link between the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force. Their heraldry can be traced back to before the Korean War, where USAF radio operators were embedded with Army units and Advised, Assisted, and Controlled Close Air Support (CAS) assets. Not only has the USAF TACP community been deployed to every major conflict since then, their stateside mission has aided and supported Louisiana residents during every natural disaster in the past decade. They are a small group that believes in not only their military community, but also their host base community. Louisiana is their home and their family.
The fundamental goal of this event is to provide support to those members and families of the fallen and disabled in their moment of need.
100% of the proceeds will benefit the TACP Association.

Awards will be Top Overall M&F, & 1st, 2nd, 3rd, M&F each age group for the 5K and the 10K races.

Age Groups will be 1-14,15-19,20-29,30-39, 40-49 & 50+
