Cenac Marine Services was proud to provide a stage sponsorship for the Terrebonne Foundation for Academic Excellence (TFAE) 5k Run for Excellence and Food Fest on Saturday, May 12. As stated in the Houma Times, by executive director, Katie Potier, “This popular race travels through historic downtown Houma, ending at the Houma Courthouse Square where you can then enjoy the best after party in town. With more than 1000 race participants and more than 3000 attendees, the TFAE Run for Excellence is one of the largest 5K and after parties in town. One thing that makes it unique is that once you pay your admission fee (or race fee) you don’t take out another penny while here. It’s all-you-can-eat-and all –you-can-drink and I think people appreciate that it is all inclusive.”
CEO of Cenac Marine Services, Benny Cenac, was thrilled to partner alongside other main sponsors for the event, such as, TGMC Community Sports Institute, The Times, and Blue Cross Blue Shield- especially when it came to supporting such a noble cause. The Run for Excellence is the primary fundraiser for TFAE. The funds are used to help local educators fund their programs through grants. With over $1,000,000 in grants awarded to local educators, TFAE has become a valuable source for Terrebonne’s public schools– funding various projects including classrooms with Google Chromebooks.
There are several ways to get involved and to support the Terrebonne Foundation for Academic Excellence. Be on the lookout throughout the year for ways to help this phenomenal group; including next year’s 5k run and food fest slated for May 11, 2019. Cenac is always on the look out to be a part of these great community events that are also for a wonderful, charitable cause.
