Hands on Tidewater continued one of its longest running annual traditions of sending a delegation of volunteers for Jewish Family Service’s Run, Roll or Stroll Race at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk on Sunday, May 6. Hands on Tidewater is the community service/ social action branch of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Young Adult Division.

Hands on Tidewater managed the two water stations, providing water for the several hundred runners.

Hands on Tidewater provided more volunteers than any other group or agency. The team of volunteers who braved the coldest weather and most brutal wind of any of the years included: Jeff Cooper, Leah and Scott Flax, Nataly and Seth Fleishman, Aaron Goldmeier, Jennifer Groves, Jennie Hurwitz, Anna and David Jancewicz, Joy Rosenblatt, Alexandra and Ben Simon, Aaron and Rachel Shames and Hallie and Josh Weinstein.

For YAD, it was a pleasure to help JFS with their major fundraiser. The group looks forward to returning next year, because not only were they able to help JFS, they all had a great time.
