Kickin’ Parkinson’s was proud to be a Crescent City Classic Charity Partner for the third year. Under the capable leadership of Steve Reisig and Kirsten Early Team Fox 2017 recruited 45 runners who received donations from 281 donors raising a total of $28,480 on April 15, 2017! We would also like to thank the Thomas family and especially Laine Thomas, a KP Committee Member who continues to support our efforts and mission to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
A special “Shout-Out” to Paul and Katharine Dastugue who raised $7,910 and Steve Reisig who raised $6,100 for Kickin’ Parkinson’s, putting them among the top individual fundraisers for the entire CCC Charity effort!

Besides the facts:
The Classic is New Orleans’ (and the region’s) premier 10k road race, and one of the oldest 10k races in the nation. For 37 years, it has combined world class competition, amateur participation and great fun for all participants. Starting in 1979 with 902 participants, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic has grown to become the preeminent fitness event in Louisiana. This Easter Weekend Tradition is now, along with Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, one of New Orleans signature events.
