The Kelly Gibson Foundation is a community-driven charity dedicated to improving the lives of those who live in New Orleans and the surrounding areas with an emphasis on supporting children’s athletic programming, first responders and military initiatives.
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 19, 2014).
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.
