The Burt Clark Foundation’s RunForBurt 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser is in memory of Natchitoches native Burt Clark, a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend and citizen. Burt was an avid runner and cyclist who tragically transitioned this life way too soon. Burt was committed to encouraging, inspiring, and motivating everyone he met to engage in a more active and healthier lifestyle anchored in fitness. Burt didn't just encourage others, he led by example participating in numerous events annually, including the Atlanta Peachtree Road Race, Calloway Gardens Triathlon/Duathlon and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Beta Lambda Lambda Chapter’s 5K/10K event. Burt passionately believed everyone should "get up and move" regardless of age, gender, physical ability, or socioeconomic standing.
The Burt Clark Foundation will continue Burt’s passion for inspiring and motivating healthier lifestyle choices, and through your generous donations and proceeds from BCF events will award two college scholarships annually to deserving high school seniors graduating from Burt’s high school alma mater Natchitoches Central High School or that will be attending Burt's college alma mater Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
This Annual RunForBurt 5K Run/Walk fundraiser event will take place at Northwestern State University on Saturday October 5, 2024. Both in-person and virtual participation opportunities will be available for all age groups, including children, youth and adults. Please visit the RunForBurt5K website for detailed race day information. A map of the Collins Pavillion location can be found here.
