    Find out how we calculate Calories

    About the Calorie Calculator

    Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.

    When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.

    Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

    Welcome to the 2018 Baton Rouge NephCure 5K Fun Run/Walk map. We hope that you will participate with us on Saturday, October 27, 2018, 8:00 a.m. registraton, at the A. Z. Young Park at 800 North 3rd Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

    Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser is Honorary Chairman of this event.

    This is a beautiful route around Capitol Lake and through the Capitol grounds on sidewalks and paths, except when crossing streets. We must abide by all traffic laws.

    Immediately following the 5K Fun Run/Walk at the A. Z. Young Park we are having a Fall Fest with a band, games for the children, and lots of food, including Louisiana seafood, compliments of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board. There will be hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken and sausage jambalaya, shrimp jambalaya, boiled shrimp and corn on the cob, and seafood gumbo (to go). We are pre-selling jambalaya an seafood gumbo (to go)!

    And the best part of all of this is, it's for a great cause. The NephCure Walk is held around the country and organized by dedicated local volunteers from your community that help raise funds for local patients and families.

    NKI is the only organization committed exclusively to supporting research seeking the cause of the potentially debilitating kidney disease Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and Nephrotic Syndrome, improve treatment and find a cure. Your support helps advance research aimed at improving treatments for patients suffering from these conditions.

    We look forward to seeing you on October 27th. The register for the event go to:

    If you have any questions, feel free to call me, at 225-936-6265.

    Thank you for your support!
