The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission invites the community to join tjhem at their annual Mission Possible 5/10k & Fun Run on Saturday, Sept. 21.

“The Mission Possible 5/10k and Fun Run is a great opportunity for our community to not only support the Mission but also enjoy the fun and fellowship that comes when we unite for a common goal. This community is filled with people who want to make a difference, and I have no doubt that together we can change our cities one life at a time,” says Pastor Larry Otwell, executive director of the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission.
Registration is $35 until 7 a.m. on Sept. 20. Registration will be $40 on race day.
