18th Annual Brother Eldon 5k Draws Over 300 Participants

The 18th Annual Brother Eldon 5K Run and One-Mile Run/Walk/Jog, hosted by the Catholic High School Alumni Association, drew over 300 participants. Participants competed in the one-mile run/walk/jog and the 5K events. A highlight of the day was a celebration of Brother EldonÕs 75 years of service as a Brother of the Sacred Heart. After the race, alumni, families and friends enjoyed live music in the CHS courtyard provided by Pocket Change and delicious food and beverages provided by local vendors. The title sponsor of the event was BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana. Click here to see the race results.

Brother Eldon Crifasi, SC Õ39 and the race committee would like to thank the sponsors, volunteers and race participants for their support of this yearÕs event, proceeds of which go toward the Brother Eldon Scholarship Fund, providing assistance for CHS students with financial needs.
