Volunteer for Jazz Half 2017!

 

Each year, we require dozens of volunteers to help perform a variety of tasks, including food service, wristband sales, etc.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and must have their own transportation to and from the event. We ask that volunteers arrive at 6 a.m. and stay until the conclusion of the Post-Race Party, usually around noon.

All volunteers receive a free t-shirt, food and drinks. And of course, great music at the Post-Race Party! CLICK HERE to register as a volunteer today!

 

 

Why Jazz Half?

 

The Party. The Jazz Half Marathon & 5K boasts one of the best post-race parties around. Runners enjoy Louisiana food favorites like Jambalaya and Red Beans and Rice while famous New Orleans musicians entertain the crowds at Lafayette Square. Irma Thomas, Trombone Shorty, Kermit Ruffins, and Rockin Dopsie, Jr. are just some of the artists who have performed at previous Jazz Half marathons. The Mardi Gras Indians — icons of New Orleans culture — will also be on hand to take photos with runners.

 

Who you're running for: Meet Nicholas

Nicholas is 11 years old and was diagnosed with a large B Cell Lymphoma Tumor on his brain in December of 2015. He is in 6th grade and his favorite things to are fishing, running track, and watching Sprint Car Racing - he can't wait to get behind the wheel. He is thankful for his oncologist and neurosurgeon at Children's Hospital that help him feel better
