The truth is, you might have never heard of Chiari. And in all likelihood, you probably don't know of anyone suffering from this debilitating disease. But, it's a serious neurological disorder that affects over 300,000 people in the United States and several of those are right here in our community.

It's for those people that this Saturday, September 23, we're asking you to take part in the Conquer Chiari Walk Across America.

Registration begins at 7:00 am at Louisiana State University.  The Walk/Fun Run will begin at promptly 8:00 am and the 5K Run will begin at 8:30.
