Not all heroes wear capes, but these ones certainly did! This is the second year in a row that Team Superheroes for Gaza threw up a bat signal and got their NYC community to join for a Gaza 5K supporting mental health for children in the Gaza Strip. [Note: costumes not optional]

In reflecting on this year's 2018 Gaza 5K race, Erin Ednie shared some thoughts on behalf of her super team:

What a gift it is to take part in the Gaza 5K! The energy and emotions we felt coming together in solidarity with so many caring and wonderful people supporting the refugee children brought so much hope and inspiration for us to continue our purpose beyond the pavement. God willing, we can grow our team to spread awareness and work to see peace of mind and heart brought to the beautiful children of Palestine.

Thank you to these superheroes for showing Palestine refugees that Americans care. Your commitment year after year to this cause is inspiring and we can't wait to see how you all dress, run, and save the day at next year's race.
