 Inaugural Crawfish Crawl is a "BIG" Success!
Crawfish Crawl Logo
The inaugural BIG Crawfish Crawl for Higher Education on April 27 raised over $4,000 for college scholarships for students in the Bayou Region. The education fundraiser at Peltier Park in Thibodaux featured a 5K race, family fun run/walk, an exciting crawfish boil-off, and spicy boiled crawfish for sale.

All proceeds have already been used to expand BIG's 2013 scholarship program for local students attending NSU, FTCC and SCLTC, and plans are already in the works for a BIGGER and BETTER 2nd Annual Crawfish Crawl in 2014!
