If you are a runner, this is probably your favorite time of the year! There are so many different 5k's in the area and we love to highlight the ones that go towards great causes in our community. The 3 Miles for Free Smiles raises funds to aid in the repair of cleft lips and palates.  This 5K Run is the only one of it's kind when it comes to the special cause.

Last year, I attended the race and it was such a  great time. If you're a runner, this is an event for you to check out because the proceeds will go to the local LSU Foundation and Shriner's Hospital for maxillofacial surgeries specifically to repair cleft lips and palates.

This year, the race is set for Saturday, March 9th in Shreveport.  People of all ages are encouraged to participate in the race and enjoy the post party.  Get your running shoes ready, and get the full details here.
