Jacoby’s Shield’s Inaugural Superhero 5K Run/Walk & Family Stroll

Calling SCs mightiest superheroes! Join us on April 21, 2018 for Jacoby’s Shield’s inaugural Superhero 5K Run/Walk & Family Stroll. Jacoby’s Shield is a non-profit volunteer organization that heals the hearts of bereaved parents and siblings. Jacoby’s Shield accomplishes its mission primarily through hosting family bereavement camps. The camps combine traditional fun camp activities with grief education and emotional support, facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. The money being raised will help fund the camps. The first camp will be held October 26-28, 2018, at the White Oak Conference Center in Winnsboro, SC.
This is a family and stroller friendly event. All are encouraged to wear your superhero gear.
