Our work in Metropolitan New Orleans could not be possible without your generous support.

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.
