And so could we have with this but Joseph burns Joseph burns you're so nice to. To come on with just first of all to tell somebody who doesn't know what the red -- run ins. Well thank you for -- -- at the red dress -- it is an annual event of this start twentieth. There's New Orleans area. And we are that the sponsors the New Orleans has chops carriers. Who has a running group who were actually a worldwide running it. And he the red -- run here started out very small. Just give people and and as a began to grow. We either aircraft carrier decided that we were gonna try to really grow and open it up to not only just our members but everybody. To raise money so we could give it away. Of course along the way we go below fondue and yes she's just so. We're trying to encourage -- anybody who wants to run or walk. I want out. Two on opposite my third and urged her own monitor web site and -- -- side also. Two to help us raise money so we can give it away to local charities. And in my court that last year you granted 200000. Dollars. A little under 200 out all of the local charities and over the last five years old over seven under that. So we. The New Orleans had counselors have no paid employees we are all volunteers. The would put on the event that Armstrong park. Which is very good in the forest. And Latin. We have continuous music from. About 9:30 in the morning for. Local Miami Florida three local bands that. That is -- includes. Barbeque from quirky. As well all the adult beverage like to direct that. This is an adult of that by the way you must be twenty months. And it isn't just for men is it -- For -- Three -- -- that is years ago this is how I discovered the reverend -- that. I'm walking through the quarter. -- two men in red dresses and I it I never blinked I thought I'm in the quarter and I didn't faze me and then all of a sudden you turn a corner and their many man. And -- its. Well there were you don't were looked -- -- many women to -- But it it's it is a beautiful event when you see the sea of red literally.
