8:00 AM – Kids’ Fun Run; 8:15 AM – 5K/10K Race
Starting at First Baptist Church – 543 Ockley Drive, Shreveport, LA
Shreveport, Louisiana – Barksdale Spouses’ Club (BSC) will host the 7th Annual Shamrock Shuffle 5K/10K Race & Kids’ Fun Run on March 19, 2022, at 8:00 AM beginning at First Baptist Church of Shreveport. The Shamrock Shuffle raises funds that enable BSC to provide scholarships and teacher grants to local military-affiliated dependents.
“We are so excited to bring the Shuffle back for another incredible year,” says Courtney Vanni, Shamrock Shuffle Chair. “We want to provide a great race day experience, but at the end of the day, it’s all about our scholarship program.”
To further fund 2022 scholarships and grants, Barksdale Spouses’ Club has partnered with Great Raft Brewing to offer Pints for a Purpose on Friday, March 4, 2022. This pint night will feature a special bundle, completed by a take-home commemorative glass, with a portion of all proceeds supporting the Shuffle Scholarship Fund.
In 2021, BSC awarded more than $10,000 in scholarships and in support of local and national military-focused charitable organizations or support groups such as the Air Force Aid Society, Operation Bright Holiday, LSUS Foundation’s Fund for Veteran Services, and more. “It’s our goal to be able to support each and every applicant, whether they’re a veteran in an elementary classroom, a parent going back to school, or a young adult just starting their education. It’s more than just a race – it’s supporting the futures of those in our community.”
