Get hearts pumping at the 13th Annual Run, Roll or Stroll

Sunday, May 7, 24th Street Park at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk

Spring means it’s time for Jewish Family Service’s m o s t anticipated event of the year: the 13th Annual Run, Roll or Stroll. In addition to the 8K run, 5K run or walk, and 1 mile run/walk, plenty of fun family activities are planned.

Synagogues, schools, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to form teams. Prizes will be awarded for the largest teams in each category.

Prior to each race, runners and walkers can warm up their muscles with a trainer from J-Fit, capture the moment in a photo booth, play a little corn hole, visit some vendors, and enjoy music from the New 101.3 2WD. Kids can have their face painted and everyone can visit the vendors— Neighborhood Harvest, Oberweiss Dairy, and Cold Pressed Express. Spring cleaning? Don’t throw out those athletic shoes. Recycle them by bringing them to the bins for MORE Foundation Group.

Introducing…Mitzvah Miles
Run, Roll or Stroll, Mitzvah Miles participants simply ask family and friends for monetary donations of any amount to help JFS provide many vital services. To learn more, contact a synagogue office or visit www.jfsrunrollorstroll.org.

Spring Into Healthy Living with James Young, MD, world-renowned physician from Cleveland Clinic
Wednesday, May 10, 7 pm
Chrysler Museum, Norfolk
This year’s Spring Into Healthy Living speaker is again from the Cleveland Clinic. Renowned physician, James Young, MD, will speak at the George M. and Linda H. Kaufman Theatre at the Chrysler Museum of Art.

“With the changing landscape of the healthcare profession,” says Young, “we must change how we educate our future physicians. We must demand knowledgably skilled, compassionate professionals who understand the need to put patients first and develop teamwork. No longer is the physician a gladiator alone fighting disease. We must change the old-fashioned medical education paradigm.”

A cardiologist, Young will also answer questions on medical current events.

The evening is generously made possible by Linda H. Kaufman. The program is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. To register, call 757-321-2235 or visit http://tinyurl.com/JFSevent.
