Thousands of participants came out to the Providence Corporate Cup Run/Walk 5K Saturday, March 23 on North Blvd. in downtown Baton Rouge. It was the 25th year for the event, in which company teams or individuals run a 5K (3.1 mile) race course. Many area companies have on-site tent locations for their employees, business associates, and friends at the event, which helps promote corporate wellness.
