Join in on the Race for Research

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. -

The race is on for research.

The Spine Institute of Louisiana is searching every day for cures to life-altering back problems.

KTBS 3 has teamed up with the organization to help fund some of the latest clinical trials in our area through the 1st Annual Race For Research.

Dr. Andrew Utter is a neurosurgeon with The Spine Institute.

Through getting active, he's been able to lose 35 pounds in the past 18 months.

He said training for events like the Race For Research help strengthen your neck and spine.

"Running, especially long distance, is a little bit about exploring your limits and you definitely feel better running. Now I can run in the morning and play ball with my kids all afternoon. My energy level is much better," said Utter.

The race kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 28 in Shreveport.

There will be a 5k, 10k and half-mile fun run.

Free breakfast is provided to participants. There will be live music and cash prizes for race winners.
