“Laura’s Run” is held each March on a 5K course at Scottsdale Sports Complex located at 8081 E. Princess Drive, Scottsale, Arizona.
It is a 5K event for runners and a 1.5K course for walkers. The top three finishers in each age bracket will be awarded medals, and registered runners and walkers will receive a “Laura’s Run” T-shirt designed by Rick Kersten, well-known local artist and friend of Laura's Foundation.
In addition, there will be a “Kids’ Dash" and the family pets are invited to join runners and walkers for a “Doggie Trot”. There will be goodie bags for the children, treats for the dogs, complimentary refreshments for registered participants, live music, a silent auction, and raffle prizes. It's a morning full of fun for the whole family!
2014 Event Information
The 8th Annual "Laura’s Run" is scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014 at Scottsdale Sports Complex. Registration for this event will be open after February 10, 2014.
Long-time Burdick family friend, Rick Kersten, generously donates his time and artistic talent to create each year's t-shirt design for "Laura's Run." Rick has worked in many artistic media but is best known for his popular line of humorous greeting cards that are sold nationally, internationally and online. Rick especially enjoys creating bold canvases that capture the color and unique atmosphere of the Southwest and Old Mexico.
