2016 Freret 5K
JLNO thanks everyone for their generous support of the 2016 Freret 5K. It was a fabulous event, bringing together local businesses, Freret neighbors, runners, and walkers to promote family fitness in our community.
Over 520 participants hit Freret Street for the morning’s festivities. After a half-mile fun run and 5K run/walk, everyone enjoyed a variety of refreshments from local restaurants and entertainment from the Tulane Jazz Band. Donations from JLNO members and the public sponsored nearly 100 youth runners.
