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. 

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.
