Admission for the general public is $10 for individuals or $8 apiece for team members. For Nicholls students, faculty, staff, alumni and high school students, admission for individuals is $7 – or $5 apiece for team members. Teams consist of five members.

The community walk/run will kick off at 9 a.m. on the Nicholls campus and will feature a kiddie fair, refreshments, a health fair and T-shirts for race participants. All community members and businesses are invited to offer their support.
