Shreveport, LA: Lace up your running shoes and spread your wings, as Holy Angels proudly presents the 23rd Annual David Rice Memorial Angel Run and Walk on Saturday, April 20! From dedicated runners to enthusiastic walkers and passionate supporters, everyone is invited to be a part of this year’s extraordinary event, promising a bigger post-race party and more prizes and awards than ever before.

The race, set to begin at 8:00 a.m. on the Holy Angels’ Campus, will wind through the scenic Long Lake Subdivision before concluding back on campus. Following the run, participants can indulge in post-race festivities until 11:30 a.m. at the official race afterparty. Expect live music, activities for all ages, and booths featuring local vendors.

Awards will be presented across various divisions, including Adults (18 and Up) and Children (17 and Younger). Additionally, team prizes will recognize the largest overall teams, corporate teams, and community teams. Spirit prizes will celebrate the most spirited participants and the best wings, encouraging creativity and team spirit among participants.

Registration is $40 through race day and includes a 2024 Angel Run T-shirt, a race bib, a tote bag, complimentary refreshments, and access to the afterparty. Participants can enhance their race day attire by adding a unique Angel Run Trucker Hat to their registration bag – available for purchase during sign-up. On-the-day registration will be available at Holy Angels from 7 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. on April 20.

Race packets can be collected on April 18 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and April 19 (10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) at Sportspectrum in Shreveport. Parking is available on the Holy Angels campus, with overflow parking and shuttle service available from Ellerbe Road Baptist Church.

In 2002, the Rice Family and friends initiated the Angel Run to honor their son, David, a cherished member of the Holy Angels community who passed away in 2001. All proceeds from the Angel Run benefit individuals with disabilities served by Holy Angels.

Holy Angels offers job training and placement, day program activities, the gold standard of Applied Behavior Analysis with education instruction in the Community School, and residential services. Their focus remains on empowering individuals with disabilities to achieve their maximum level of independence.
