Calling the Southeast’s mightiest superheroes! Join us on April 20, 2019, for Jacoby’s Shield Second Annual 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 Camp SHIELD family bereavement retreats. Camp SHIELD combines traditional fun camp activities with grief education and emotional support, facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. The money being raised will help fund Camp SHIELD and bereavement support groups. Camp SHIELD will be held September 20-22, 2019, at Camp Kinard in Batesburg-Leesville.

This is a family and stroller friendly event. All are encouraged to wear your superhero gear.
