We are excited to announce the 12th Annual 5K run/walk benefitting the Women's Resource Center, returning back to the Natchitoches Riverbank!

The Run, Baby, Run! 5K and Fun Run gathers participants from across the state for a lively morning jog in Historic Downtown Natchitoches. This 5K run serves as a fundraiser for the Women’s Resource Center of Natchitoches, and we take pride in enhancing the event with numerous additional opportunities this year! The Women’s Resource Center stands as a cornerstone in our community, tirelessly offering resources to local families, including free and confidential pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, prenatal education, emotional support, and material assistance. The event's proceeds contribute to operational costs, ensuring the continued provision of vital services to the Natchitoches Community!

This beloved annual run/walk is to increase awareness and raise money for the Women's Resource Center and the services they provide for free to over 400 lives in the community annually. 
The WRC is a non-profit pregnancy help medical clinic that serves women in pregnancy in Northwest/Central Louisiana. Services are 100% free and confidential.

Saturday, May 18th we will be running through downtown Natchitoches starting at the Natchitoches Riverbank!
The 1-mile fun run/walk begins at 8:00 am and the 5k run/walk begins at 8:45 am.
