The Montgomery Blair Katrina Project

The Montgomery Blair Katrina Project, a group of seniors at Blair High School in Silver Spring, organized the Run-o-vation 5K to help raise money for rebuilding efforts in New Orleans. It's been almost 3 years since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, but the damage still demands our attention. The proceeds of the event will go to Hands On New Orleans, an organization that leads a range of volunteer projects to continue the rebuilding process in New Orleans.

The course which ran through Sligo Creek Park and the neighborhoods of Park Hills and Seven Oaks was 3.1 miles long.

Thanks to the organizers from Montgomery Blair High School, the many sponsors and all the race participants.
