SHREVEPORT, La. (Centenary News Service) — The Centenary College Neuroscience Society will hold the inaugural CNS Fun Run Saturday, Nov. 6. at the Gold Dome on the Centenary College campus.


The 5-kilometer race begins at 9 a.m., and will take runners and walkers through the scenic neighborhoods behind the Gold Dome.
