The Northside Education Foundation (NEF) Superhero 5K Run/Walk & Family Wellness Fair, presented by CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System, is one of the largest, local non-profit 5Ks in San Antonio. In 2016, almost 4,000 participated.

On this day, NISD staff, students, hundreds of families, sponsors, and vendors will come together to support NEF’s mission of generating more resources for NISD faculty and staff to provide innovative educational programs for more than 106,000 students. After the race, with a registration upgrade, the fun continues with a private lunch and a day at SeaWorld (Aquatica not included). 

This year, NEF is celebrating the real-life superheroes who support the District with or without a cape or mask. Join forces with your sidekicks and be a hero for NISD by participating in the Superhero 5K! Organizations interested in being a super sponsor or Wellness Fair vendor can register here. Questions? Call 210-397-8599.
