Youth Run NOLA is a non-profit organization that serves 11 to 18 year-olds in St. Bernard, Orleans, and Jefferson parishes from September to April. 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.
The “Run For It” Program is the Official Charity Program of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic. The goal of the “Run For It” Program is to raise $1 million and serve the Greater New Orleans area needs. Each year, the Crescent City Classic donates 100 Charity bib numbers (guaranteed race entries) to each Charity Partner for the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k. Official Charity Partners recruit 100 runners/walkers who can commit to raising a minimum of $200 for their Charity by race day (April 4, 2015)
The Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic is produced by the Crescent City Fitness Foundation, a 501C3 non-profit entity. The funds and positive impact of the “Run For It” Program are important to the success of the Crescent City Fitness Foundation’s mission, and the Classic is proud to support local charities and their fundraising endeavors.
