Run With The Nuns: October 17-18, 2014
Registration is only $30!
Where does the money go?
All proceeds benefit children's health in the region. Past beneficiaries have included Sutton Children's Hospital, the Cara Center for child victims of child abuse and neglect, the Gingerbread House and more. We love our children and believe our highest calling is to do right by them.
What's new this year?
The Run with the Nuns Online Auction will be held from September 3 to October 19. There are 200 items up for auction, includeding furniture, birdhouses, homemade cakes, tickets and collectibles galore! Click here to bid!
The RWTN favorites will all be back, but we have shaken up the schedule and added some new things to the mix. On Saturday, festivities will begin at 8:00 a.m. on site with the popular Biker Breakfast and Blessing!
RWTN's 2014 Religious Medal
Most Rev. Michael Duca, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Shreveport, has chosen Mother Teresa of Calcutta as this year’s religious medal for Run with the Nuns VIII.
The Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, commonly known as Mother Teresa, founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Catholic religious congregation of Sisters, who operate orphanages, hospices, clinics, and schools throughout the world. The Sisters take vows “to serve the poorest of the poor". Mother Teresa was the recipient of numerous honors including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. In 2003, she was beatified (one of the steps to sainthood) by the Catholic Church as "Blessed Teresa of Calcutta".
During our Biker Blessing, each participant will receive a free Mother Teresa medal.
Bishop Duca and Msgr. Earl Provenza will be blessing bikers and bikes beginning at 9 am on Saturday, October 18, in the Red River District-Downtown Shreveport.
