BENEFITING: Operation Homefront, Inc
ORGANIZER: Operation Homefront Louisiana/Mississippi
I will be taking on the 6.2 miles of the Crescent City Classic on April 4th to honor the memory of a friend of mine who recently passed on. Because he was a member of the US Marines, I am dedicating my effort in the race to raising money for Operation Homefront Louisiana/Mississippi.
Last year Operation Homefront Louisiana/Mississippi provided more than $120,000 in emergency assistance to wounded warriors in 33 communities throughout our two states. The organization also awarded mortgage-free homes to two veterans and supported our local military families with another $450,000 in goods and services such as food cards, school supplies and holiday toys.
