CHRISTUS hosts Miracle Tour bike ride fundraiser at Haughton High


CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System is hosting the second annual Miracle Tour on Oct. 6 at Haughton High School.

Miracle Tour includes 64,42,28, 14 and 5 mile cycling routes to raise funds to benefit the 17 signature Children’s Miracle Network Hospital programs at CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System and our community.

Miracle Tour offers bicycle rides catering to every cyclist including a 5-mile family fun ride with routes providing beautiful scenery of Lake Bistineau and the surrounding countryside. Registered event participants will enjoy stocked rest stops, SAG vehicles on well-marked routes, enthusiastic volunteers and an event t-shirt, all while helping local kids. Food and drinks will be provided at a post-ride celebration.

“We are excited to raise money for local kids with this event for a second year,” Amy Heron, CHRISTUS Foundation Shreveport-Bossier Director, said. “We saw what an impact this event had on our fundraising last year and how enthusiastic the cycling community was about participating in an event that helps local kids! Our CMN Hospital programs at CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier helps both sick and healthy children through our 17 programs, and we can’t wait to see how much of an impact this event will have for our local babies, kids and teens.”

Last year the event attracted over 130 cyclists and the number is expected to grow to over 200 this year.

Riders who raise funds will receive great incentives including a 2018 Miracle Tour jersey and the chance to win fabulous prizes. Every dollar raised stays right here to support the CMN Hospital programs and the local kids they serve.

The start and end of the cycling tour is at Haughton High School, 210 E. McKinley, Haughton. Registration is $40 now through Oct. 19 and $45 Oct. 20-21. The Family Fun Ride is $15 per rider.

Great Raft is hosting a carb loading dinner on Oct. 5 for participants to pick up their packets, meet Miracle Kids, and enjoy dinner from one of the local CMN Hospital partners, Panda Express.
