DC NONPROFIT HOSTS “GROWN UP FIELD DAY” AT MARIE REED ES
Washington, DC (April 26, 2013)- Yachad (yah-khad) invites everyone 18+ to “get their kid on!” this Cinco de Mayo. Yachad will be hosting a Grown Up Field Day @ Marie Reed full of obstacle courses, relay races, mind challenges and field games, all with a home-repair twist. The event, which will take place on May 5th from 11:45am to 3pm at Marie Reed Elementary School’s field , with bar specials in Adams Morgan to follow, is a fundraiser for Yachad and their young pro network, Yachad United.
Yachad is a nonprofit that brings communities together by preserving affordable homes and revitalizing neighborhoods throughout the DC area. Their young professional network, Yachad United, consisting of young pros who choose to network while giving back to the community, needs to raise money in order to complete two large scale repair projects throughout the year. Not coincidentally, one of the repair projects will be at Marie Reed Elementary School.
Teams of 4-6 people will compete for glory, beer specials, and bragging rights, as well as prizes. The best, worst and best-costumed team will receive prizes from partners including Balance Gym, Pleasant Pops, Vita Coco, KIND Snacks, as well as others. Other partners include Millie & Al’s, Grand Central, The Blaguard, Tryst, Kickball365, Landshark Lager, Los Lobos Burrito Cart, Captain Cookie and the Milk Man and more.
100% of the net proceeds will be donated to Yachad thanks to the large volunteer force being lead by Yachad board member and real estate broker, Jason Kastner and special events consultant, Rachel Miller Griffith. “This event lets us come together for the community and also compete against each other in a really fun way. The buzz around the event is incredible and we cannot wait,” Miller Griffith says.
