Charity and Fundraising

 


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

  1. Why run for charity? Participants that run for charity receive unique perks including special edition CCC10k t-shirt and bib, prime starting location behind seeded runners, and access to airconditioned restrooms at the start and Michelob Ultra RaceFest!
  2. How do I Sign Up? Choose Run For It Charity Registration when selecting an event on the first part of our registration page. Charity runners will receive their own unique fundraising page to share with family and friends! Register NOW!

Official Charity Partners recruit and form teams of up to 100 charity runners/walkers, who commit to raising a minimum of $200 for their charity by race day.  Official Charity Runners receive various perks and incentives for joining the program, including a personal online fundraising page. All of the money raised will be donated directly to and benefit our selected charity partners.

 

 

The Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic, along with the Crescent Fitness Foundation, is proud to announce the formation of the Legacy Partners. 

 

Since its inception six years ago, the Run For It program has infused millions of dollars into the New Orleans community and has united runners, walkers, and even the most reluctant athletes under a common goal: doing good. This success woule not be possible without the partnership of local non-profits and the sponsorships of the Allstate Sugar Bowl and Michelob Ultra. 

In honor of the success, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic, along with the Crescent City Fitness Foundation, is proud to announce the formation of Legacy Partners. As inaugural members of the program, these newly announced partners will no longer be required to submit an application to participate and charity fundraising via the Crescent City Classic platform will be available to these entities year-round.
