"Run For It!" With The CCC10K

The tradition of running the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10K is meaningful to people throughout the region for many reasons; however, it's most meaningful to the charities that benefit from its annual Saturday foray on the streets of NOLA. Non-profits that would like to apply to be a partner for the 2015 race, your deadline was just extended until August 15th.

After successfully raising more than $350K for 10 local charities during the 2014 race, organizers are hoping to increase that donation total to $500K in 2015. In order to do that, the race must choose eligible non-profits during this selection process. Each organization is given 100 race bibs to allocate to runners who commit to raising at least $200 each leading up to race day. Those fundraisers receive extra perks that include a special shirt, custom bib, and exclusive start/finish line amenities during their run. 

“The ‘Run For It’ Program has become a key element of the Classic, correlating directly with the Classic’s mission,” said Hilary Landry, Crescent City Classic Charity Coordinator. “The Program allows us to help our community by supporting local charities and their fundraising efforts, and we are proud to be able to donate every dollar raised by the charities directly back to them.”
