Dear Friends and Family,
I am excited to be running the Crescent City Classic on April 4th in support of a great organization - Youth Run NOLA! Please consider a donation on my fundraising page below to this great program in New Orleans as well (no amount is too small, or too big). I have been inspired to see young adults in the NOLA Youth Run program gain confidence and realize their full physical and mental potential through the joy of running. I am grateful in advance of your support towards continuing and expanding such a positive program that is helping New Orleans' kids discover their love for running. Fundraising for this event closes April 4th. Thank you so much for your consideration.
p.s. Below you will find more information about the work of the Kelly Gibson Foundation and Youth Run NOLA.
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.
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.
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.
