Charity Running Info

Funds from this year’s Zydeco Marathon will go toward the purchase of a mobile athletic training center for the Sports Performance Network, powered by Lafayette General Health. The 16’ trailer will travel to sporting venues for elementary and high school athletes, along with athletic trainers and sports medicine physicians. It’ll allow for a quick assessment of injuries on-site and will enable players and coaches to quickly cool down, which will help prevent other injuries, such as heat stroke.
