The Story

EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2014

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 31, 2014

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Oct 31, 2014

The 6th Annual Jazz Half Marathon & 5K will once again benefit the Cancer Program at Children's Hospital in New Orleans and will be held on Saturday, November 1, 2014. The half marathon is a 13.1 mile race running from Lafayette Square in downtown New Orleans to Audubon Park and back. The 5K is a 3.1 mile race run within downtown.

 

Following the run is a post race party in Lafayette Square where participants will be treated to food and drinks including some New Orleans favorites: jambalalya and red beans & rice.

 

We're partnering with Crowdrise to give our participants the option to "Run For Free". It's so easy! All you have to do is:

 

1. Register for the race through Eventbrite.

2. Set up your fundraiser here on Crowdrise.

3. Send out your fundraising page on Crowdrise to all your family and friends. Ask them to sponsor you by making a donation to the Cancer Program at Children's Hospital.

4. If you raise $250 and you will qualify to run the Jazz Half Marathon for free. If you raise $100, you will qualify to run the Merrill Lynch 5K for free. If you meet these goals, we will reimburse your registration fee after the race.


And that's not all. The person who raises the most money in support of the hospital's Cancer Program will receive a 3-night stay in a Marriott Hotel in New York or San Francisco (winner's choice) with round-trip airfare for two included.

 

Don't think you can raise enough money to win the grand prize? That's OK. Everyone who raises at least $100 will be eligible for a drawing with the prize being a 3-night stay in a Gulf Coast resort in Mississippi or Florida (winner’s choice of locations).
