Miracle Run heading to city streets

The Melissa Doise Hope for the Miracle 5K Run/Walk hits the streets of Jennings for the fourth year on Saturday, Oct. 26, and organizers are hoping to raise enough money this year to continue the support of breast cancer victims in Jeff Davis Parish.

“Cancer takes an incredible physical toll on you, but the part we don’t talk about as much is the financial toll it takes on your family,” said organizer Kim Precht, a breast cancer survivor and the sister of a breast cancer victim. “When this hit my family, the community really gathered together to help us in ways we never asked for or expected, and ever since then, we want to give back.”
