YAD Brings Out Heroes to Run for Boston

We had a great time meeting all the super heroes in San Diego Sunday June 9th, at the Super Hero 5k

YAD holds in annual fundraiser every spring to help raise fund for the important work that Federation does locally, nationally, and around the globe. For the past 5 years YAD participants have danced the night away at the annual Tzedakah Ball. With the huge success at Men's Event and Option, event chairs Marie Maya and Carly Simms wanted to think outside the box and do something completely different this year.

The 5k and BBQ drew out a croud of nearly 250 people and raised over $8,000. There was huge support from the community with donations from Karl Strauss, Disneyland, Monster, MOGL, Uber, and tons of museums and landmarks in San Diego. And sponsorship by Channel 6. YAD is excited to see this event grow and help more causes in need!
at Liberty Station Park. The Super Hero 5k run was put together by YAD (Young Adult Division), a part of the Jewish Federation of San Diego. The event proceeds went to help aid the victims of the Boston marathon bombing though our partners in Boston Combined Jewish Philanthropies and OneFund Boston. The event aimed to recognize the everyday heros that often go unnoticed. There were so many families and supportive people who made this event come to life.
