The first 3000 Half Marathon finishers will receive medallions.

Children's Hospital treats more Louisiana kids with cancer than all other facilities combined. Children’s Hospital's LaNasa-Greco Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders treats more than 1,100 children with cancer each year, and our hospital has a policy of never turning away a child who needs the care we offer, regardless of the family's ability to pay.

 To continue, advance and expand the services available through our Cancer Program, we need your help! Encourage your friends, family and coworkers to sponsor your run as you make strides to help us end childhood cancers.
