Great Pumpkin Run for Research

Reduce the risk of chronic illnesses like cancer and heart disease

Saturday, October 29, 2016 @ 8:00 am
We are developing a new route this year, so check back soon for news!

Dress up, join the fun, and run to help loved ones with cancer!

The Great Pumpkin Run for Research is a 5K run and health walk, a half-mile kid's run, healthy lifestyle exhibits, face painting, Halloween costume contests, and a pumpkin decorating contest.

Gather all of your family, friends, and co-workers because the teams with the largest numbers of registered runners win cash prizes of $250, $150 and $100!  Race begins at 8:00 am.  Pre-registration for the 5K is $30 through Oct. 28, 2016, and $35 on race day. The half-mile kid's run is $25 through Oct. 28, 2016, and $30 race day. 

All paid participants will receive the 2016 Great Pumpkin Run for Research longsleeved t-shirt. You can register through the LSU Health Sciences Foundation website by clicking here.  Or, you can register at Sportspectrum located at 6970 Fern Ave in Shreveport.

For information, contact Kelli Dauphin at 318.813.1056 or via email at

All proceeds from the Great Pumpkin Run for Research stay in Shreveport to support cancer research at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center at LSU Health Shreveport. Fundraising projects allow Feist-Weiller Cancer Center to award research grants for LSU Health Shreveport's cancer researchers to develop their ideas. Scientists have leveraged $1.4 million raised locally into $14 million in national grants!
