Area Students Return from Montana Adventure Leadership Trek

In late June, the work of The Foundation reached a new level of engagement, seeing visions we have had since we began come to life.

Our desire to introduce youth from North Louisiana to Ross’s community in Bozeman, Montana, through a program that nurtures positive holistic living became a reality.

4th Annual Backroads & Bayous Trail Run Draws a crowd!

Special thanks to all who participated and volunteered, making our 4th trail run an incredible success! Runners ran 10m and 3m distances through scenic farm country with art by the Renzi Center, yoga by Breathe Yoga, and plenty of food, making it a perfect event for the whole family. Our friends at Mahaffey Farm provided meat for insanely delicious tacos prepared by El Cabo Verde (home of award winning Chef Gabrielle Balderas). Beer was provided by local Red River Brewing Company with coffee provided by Bonfire Coffee

Backroads and Bayous Trail Run will return on May 18, 2019, so mark your calendars. Stay tuned more information about our 5th Annual Celebration!
