EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2014
We met in New Orleans and the city still holds a special place in our hearts. As part of our registry, we invite you to support an organization that we believe is doing wonderful work in the City called Youth Run NOLA.
Youth Run NOLA is a non-profit organization that serves 11 to 18 year-olds in the New Orleans region. Guided by teacher-coaches at school-based chapters and volunteer running buddies at monthly events, students — many with little or no prior experience running — prepare for a year-end 10K and/or half-marathon through a demanding course of training aligned with current best practices for exercise and nutrition. In the process, they not only learn the keys to living healthy, but also develop the discipline, camaraderie, and sustained work ethic that forge success on the course, in the classroom, and in their community.
Since its founding in 2010, YRNOLA has served more than 300 students at 16 school sites, run more than 8,000 miles, and logged more than 14,000 volunteer hours.
