Stuff About Me:

Hello! Thanks for considering donating to this great cause! On Saturday, April 4th, I'll be running in the 37th annual 10k Crescent City Classic to raise funds for Youth Run NOLA. I discovered Youth Run shortly after moving to New Orleans less than a year ago. This incredible program brings opportunities to incorporate fitness and fun into the lives of disadvantaged youth at over 20 schools in the greater New Orleans area.

As an avid runner myself, I have witnessed firsthand the tremendous physical and mental benefits running can provide. Being able to share that passion with the youth of New Orleans has been an eye opening experience for me. Many of the 4th through 8th graders I run with every week were not able to run a consistent 100 yards just a few months ago. Now, with the help of dedicated coaches, running buddy volunteers, and charitable donations from folks like you, they are crushing 5k races throughout the city. A few of them have even completed their first half marathon! 

Your donation will be going to a great cause that will continue to provide opportunities for these kids to participate in races throughout the city, train with coaches and running buddies after school twice a week, and hopefully expand to involve more schools across the greater New Orleans area. Thank you in advance for any donation you may be able to make!
