32nd Annual Corporate Cup:Second Line for Literacy
This family-friendly event features a 5K road race for teams and individual runners and walkers, a half-mile fun run, and a free children’s play place staffed by the Y's own licensed child care provides. Your race fee (only $25 for early birds) gives you food by Acme Oyster House, beer by Covington Brew House, and great music by the Stooges Brass Band. Whether you want to run, walk, or if you just want to come for the beer and music, we want to see you there!
It is important to show the YMCA of Greater New Orleans that our local community supports literacy programs like YES!. By participating in this event, you are telling the Y that you appreciate its support for socially responsible programs such as YES!, which are offered free of charge to struggling readers in our area. I would love to see our partner agencies come out in force for this event to make a big statement!
Please go to www.runnotc.org to register for this event. We are going to run, walk, dance, eat, drink, and carry on with family and friends in support of a great cause listening to wonderful music! I can't wait to see you there. On behalf of YES! staff, volunteers, and the many students we teach, I thank you for your kind support.
