Now in its 6th year, the 2019 Live Well San Diego 5K and Kids 1-Mile Fun Run brought thousands of San Diegans together on Sunday, July 28th in support of a healthy, safe and thriving San Diego County.
In partnership with 211 San Diego, this year’s event celebrated the hero in all of us with a superhero-themed race and activities throughout the morning. Attendees explored food trucks and fire trucks, visited the County of San Diego Bookmobile, interacted with partner booths and played in the First 5 Family Fun Zone with palm tree climbing, an obstacle course, lawn games and Zorb balls! It was a day of family fun in the sun!
This year’s Everyday Hero Expo hosted a special food drive benefiting the San Diego Food Bank! Attendees were asked to bring nonperishable food items, such as canned meats, beans, soups, fruit, vegetables, or peanut butter to drop off at the Food Bank’s tent or red food drive barrels throughout the expo!
After the race, many join the San Diego Padres for an afternoon of baseball as the Padres faced the Giants at 1:10pm. Specially discounted tickets were available at padres.com/livewell and included a donation back to 211 San Diego.
