What is Team Blue Card?
The Blue Card provided almost $2M to Holocaust Survivors throughout the United States. In Miami-Dade County, the JCS Alliance Young Professional group has partnered with The Blue Card for the past 8 years to provide financial assistance for local Holocaust Survivors living in poverty.
Since 2011, the Team raised close to $200,000. For the upcoming race in February, we hope to ‘crush’ the $30,000 goal. Folks – That’s why your participation is essential!
Who can participate?
Anyone over the age 18 can run or walk. Walkers are expected to finish within 4 hours for the Half and 7.5 hours for the Full.
