The Benefits of the Angel Run
Each year runners and walkers enjoy this wonderful opportunity for the community to come together for a fun event while making a difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. You and your teammates will walk and run along a scenic route in southeast Shreveport. This is the only walk and run held in this area and gives all who participate the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of South Shreveport. You don’t want to miss this unique run that benefits the lives of the residents at Holy Angels!
The Angel Run & Walk has family friendly activities that include: CeCe the Clown, live music, a photo booth, yoga, face painters, a bounce house, children’s craft tables, puppet shows, snow cones, massage therapists and much more!
In 2002, the Rice family and friends helped host the very first Angel Run to honor their son David, who lived at Holy Angels for sixteen years until he passed away in 2001. “The Angel Run has not only been a special way to remember our son, but is a way to pay back Holy Angels for the love and care he received,” says Barbara Rice, David’s mother.
