Run a fun 5K on the beautiful Northshore while supporting a good cause in the 2019 Big Easy Big Heart 5K Q50 Race, on Saturday, July 20 in Fontainebleau State Park.
Proceeds of the event benefit the New Orleans Mission's Giving Hope Retreat, set on 60 acres in Lacombe near Fontainebleau State Park. It serves men and women of the New Orleans Mission who are suffering from addiction, mental illness, and physical or sexual abuse. It serves by providing rescue, recovery, and re-engagement into the community.
The peace and serenity of the Giving Hope Retreat helps with the healing process by providing a safe haven outside of the city, further removing individuals from the harmful environments that can hinder progress and perpetuate problems.
