Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Lolo Jones, the two-time Olympic hurdler and former LSU great, announced this week the start of the Lolo Jones Foundation and its signature program, Hurdles for Hope.
The mission of her program hits close to home for Jones, who overcame a challenging upbringing. It's designed to help aid families with incarcerated loved ones, single mothers, and poverty stricken communities.
