Run for It

The Junior League of New Orleans is proud to be an Official Charity Partner of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic. Each year, the Crescent City Fitness Foundation selects local charities to support and partner with for the 10k race. The goal of the “Run For It” Program is to raise $1 million annually and serve the Greater New Orleans area needs.

The following individuals are participating in the 41st running of the Crescent City Classic on Saturday, April 20, 2019 on behalf of JLNO, and we’d love for you to support them supporting us!
