      2019 ERAD (Emergency Responder Appreciation Day) Stair Climb and 5K

      Please join us on September 7, 2019 at Emergency Responder Appreciation Day 5K run and / or Stair Climb. This endeavor will go to support The Louisiana Fallen Firefighter’s Memorial, Walk of Honor Foundation. This nation and Louisiana have seen the sacrifice that the men and women of the fire service are willing to make every day. I truly believe that the greatest gift a person can give is to lay his life on the line so that someone else may live. Our partnership will bring much deserved recognition to these brave and heroic firefighters.  After the run / stair climb meet area responders, view lifesaving equipment available in our community, participate in demonstrations of equipment, and hang out for some jambalaya prepared by area responders. You may choose to participate in: The 5K starting at 8 am (route to be announced)  $25.  You may choose to run in regular athletic gear or your duty gear if you'd like. The 110 story stair climb at 9:45 am (or immediately fllowing Opening Ceremonies)(located at the Capital One building)  $25. You may choose to run in regular athletic gear or your duty/bunker gear if you'd like.  There will be an air bottle refill station if you wish to climb on air.  Bottles/packs will not be supplied, you will need to bring your own SCBA. BOTH - Or a discount if you are feeling really active that day to try both!!!!  $40 Entry fee includes an event T-shirt.  One T-shirt per participant.  After registration, please email your T-shirt size to the attached email address. Please see the facebook link to keep updated with time frames and happenings at the Civic Center.  We are also in need of volunteers to man water stations and help with set up and take down.  There is also a sign up for volunteers below.
