Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Thank you, Council President. Just a small announcement about an initiative that we're doing in the 2nd Councilmanic District on April the 12th. Myself and partnering with my wife, Dawn Chavous, who is the founder of an organization called Sky Community Partners, as well as the DeSean Jackson Foundation, we will be hosting the Point Breeze 5K Run/Walk and Health Fair bringing awareness to those who have been victims and those who have suffered from the disease of pancreatic cancer. This is a very, very deadly disease that usually when an individual finds out that they are suffering from pancreatic cancer are pretty much at the last minute.

So we're going to be doing a 5K run/walk raising awareness, but also funds for the DeSean Jackson charitable organization to find a way that we can -- to focus on finding a way on finding a cure to address this deadly disease. It's going to take place on Saturday, April the 12th in the Point Breeze community, leaving from 24th and Wharton at Wharton Square Park. Anyone that's interested in organizing a team to address this benefit, please log on to Facebook, Point Breeze 5K Run/Walk or also get in contact with my office.

Thank you very much, Mr. President.
