Travel Info

There is no transportation provided for this event. We recommend carpooling! Please park at Kehillah Jewish High School (across the street), not at the JCC.


What do I need to do in order to run/walk? Teens who wish to participate in this event must fill out our sports waiver.  Please choose Central Region West for region.

What else are we doing to ensure health and safety? We'll have a trained first responder on hand in case of any medical issues. We'll be well-stocked with water and health snacks to make sure that everyone's well-hydrated and fueled. We recommend you bring you own reusable waterbottle!

What does the money raised go towards? Proceeds from the event will go towards Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces. Friends of the Israel Defense Forces's (FIDF) mission is to offer educational, cultural, recreational, social services programs, and facilities that provide hope, purpose, and life-changing support for the soldiers who protect Israel and Jews worldwide. Additionally, the Aleph and BBG who run the 2-mile race fastest will win a $50 to their chapter's StandUp, or social action, cause. Past chapter StandUp causes have included combatting human trafficking, raising awareness about mental illness, ending hunger in our community, and creating inclusion opportunities for special needs kids.

What else will there be to do? Not into running or walking? That's okay. We'll have a dance party, snacks, games, and sports, along with tables from changemaking organizations like FIDF and Friendship Circle. Additionally, chapters will be showcasing their StandUp causes so you can learn about the tikkun olam that CRW teens is leading in our Bay Area community.
