The Race Benefits:

  • Iberia Mental Health Initiative
    • The Iberia Mental Health Initiative is a coalition of concerned citizens dedicated to identifying and addressing the mental health needs of our community.  We are composed of medical and mental health professionals, legal and law enforcement professionals, education personnel, clergy, and suicide awareness advocates, and other community supporters. All proceeds are poured back into the community to help raise awareness for mental health through programs and events. 

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and communications from the CDC and other health authorities. We are committed to open communication with our participants, volunteers, partners, and the racing community. We will update the status of our event as often as we have new information. Our number one priority is to put on a safe event. Please stay safe, healthy and active during this time.
