The 5K Run/Walk for Israel, begun in 2001 by the Young Israel of Jamaica Estates Coalition for Israel Action, drew more than 300 runners and 700 participants last week and raised more than $65,000 for a 12-year total of over $800,000.

The 5K event began during the beginning of the first Arab Intifada, and the committee’s goals continue to be to raise consciousness and funds to help Israeli terror victims.
