SLU ROCK ‘N ROAR ADDS 5K RUN TO MARCH 20 SCHEDULE
      HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Rock ‘n Roar Fest has added a fast-paced event to its March 20 schedule, the Southeastern 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser for Women’s Soccer.
      Slated to begin at 10 a.m., the run/walk will take place on Southeastern’s North Campus adjacent to the textbook rental store. Proceeds from the event will be used to fund the purchase of equipment for Southeastern’s women’s soccer program.
      The walking route will take the University Avenue underpass, going left to North Oak and following that street south to Dakota Street. Turning right on Dakota, the route will take General Pershing back to North Campus and the textbook rental building via the underpass. 
      The runners’ route is similar, but will include a loop to the Human Resources Building on the northwest end of North Campus. 
      Registration for the Southeastern 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser for Women’s Soccer is $20, payable on the morning of the race or in advance by calling 985-549-5485.
      Kathy Pittman, Southeastern alumni director, reminds participants that Rock ‘n Roar VIII activities are just another short walk to the War Memorial Student Union area. Scheduled for 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Rock ‘n Roar includes a the Hammond Downtown Development District’s Saturday farmers market, Southeastern School of Nursing’s health fair, a plant sale, arts and crafts booths, and music and entertainment provided throughout the day.
      “Also for the kids we’ll have adventure in the petting zoo, popular camps, the University Police Department's free KidCare Photo I.D. program, displays of motorcycles and police cars, and a space walk,” said Pittman.
