I want to tell you about the Crescent City Classic's "Run For It" program! People can choose to register (for free) and fundraise for 1 of 10 local (and deserving) charities. They will get an upgraded race t-shirt, a special "Charity" bib number, and perks on race day (private port-o-lets/gathering areas at the start & finish) in exchange for raising a minimum of $200 for their Charity by race day. They've already raised over $6,000, but hope to reach $1 million!
The online fundraising platform (where you can see all 10 teams and team members is here: http://www.crowdrise.com/
I fundraised for St. Jude Children's Hospital last year and I will tell you that $200 is not hard to raise! Especially for a local charity! It's a win win for all...and you get to run the race for free!
The Crescent City Classic is an amazing race! It is so much fun! The course is flat and fast and takes you through the heart of the city! And....you also get a medal!!! You know how much I love my bling y'all! ;-)
I hope you will consider signing up for the Run For It program! I'd love to see you at the start line on April 19th!
Be sure to check out the Crescent City Classic on Social Media! They are on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
