JeffCare Crosses the Finish Line of Virtual Run

Pictured top left to right and clockwise are volunteer runners/walkers Charles Redfearn, Dede Redfearn, Angela Schifani, and Dr. Thomas Hauth.

Despite COVID-19 disruptions to the Crescent City Classic 10K charity race, JeffCare persevered to raise almost $1,500 in a virtual run on April 11. Rather than ending the famous CCC course at City Park together as usual, runners/walkers followed revamped race guidelines to complete a 10K course of their choosing to maintain safe social distancing. Volunteer virtual runners and walkers included Julie Shaw, JeffCare Division Director; Dr. Thomas Hauth, M.D., JeffCare Medical Director;  Dede Redfearn, JeffCare Board Chair; and JPHSA staff members Bianca Holcomb and Angela Schifani.

JeffCare’s participation in the virtual Crescent City Classic brought a ray of hope and normalcy to these otherwise trying times. It helped JeffCare Board and staff members remind the community of the crucial services JeffCare offers Jefferson Parish residents. The social media accounts of runners underscored JeffCare’s perseverance and dedication to public health even under the most difficult of circumstances. All funds raised will help support behavioral health and primary care services for Jefferson Parish residents who are financially disadvantaged.
