The Educational Center for Autism in Shreveport is bringing us a true one of a kind event.

On April 23rd, you're invited to take part in the 6th annual Walk a Mile in Our Shoes 5K. This is so much more than just a 5K though. Sure you'll get to run and have a blast doing it, but there is much more taking place.

The event begins that Saturday morning, 9:15 AM with on-site registraion begging at 8:15 AM. It begins and ends at Shreveport Community Church: 5720 Buncombe Rd.Shreveport, LA, 71129.

Early Registration is $20 until March 31, $25 through April 22th, and $30 on the day of the race April 23th. Registration is $15 for children (12 and under), which includes entry to the post-party carnival. You may pay at Sportspectrum, located at 6970 Fern Avenue, 71105. You may also turn in registration forms with cash or a check at Shreveport Community Church.
