CRESCENT CITY CLASSIC COUNTDOWN:

Charity and Fundraising

All CCC events are produced by the Crescent City Fitness Foundation, a not-for-profit entity whose sole purpose is to promote health, fitness, and a better lifestyle for the people of the New Orleans metropolitan area. The Crescent City Fitness Foundation, founded in 1996 and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, is a member of the Road Runners Club of America {RRCA} and sponsors events year-round aimed at enhancing the exposure of youth and adults to the healthful aspects of a regular exercise program, including running and walking.  

The Foundation organizes the Health and Fitness Challenge Grant Program, dedicating its Crescent City Fall Classic 5k race to New Orleans area schools and local non-profit organizations. Unique prize packages and cash grants are given to the schools and non-profit organizations with the most participants.

The Foundation's new initiative is the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k's "Run For It" Charity Program.  The funds and positive impact of the "Run For It" Program are important to the success of Crescent City Fintess Foundation's Mission, and the Classic is proud to support local charities and their fundraising endeavors.  

 

The "Run For It" Program


The "Run For It" Program is the official charity program of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k.  The goal of the “Run For It” Program is to raise $1 million and serve the Greater New Orleans area needs.  Each year, the Crescent City Fitness Foundation chooses ten local Charities to support and partner with for the following year’s Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k race.   The Crescent City Classic donates 100 charity bib numbers (guaranteed race entries) to each Charity Partner for the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k.  Official Charity Partners recruit 100 runners/walkers who can commit to raising a minimum of $200 for their charity by Race Day.  Official Charity Runners receive various perks and incentives for raising charity dollars.
