BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Runners volunteering with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana will help several people with disabilities, one being a coworker, cross the finish line racing in wheelchairs during this weekend’s Louisiana Marathon.

Employees of Blue Cross chose to volunteer with Ainsley’s Angels of America as Angel runners. Blue Cross employee, Paden Mouton, will be taking his third Angel ride this weekend for Saturday’s 5K and Sunday’s half-marathon.

The 5K race takes place Saturday, Jan. 14 at 8 a.m. and the half-marathon will happen on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 7 a.m. Both events are held at the Louisiana Marathon Finish Festival area downtown (660 N. 4th Street).
