Beverly Hills Unified representatives were awash in joy Friday morning as the Beverly Hills 5K Committee presented a giant $30,000 check to the Beverly Hills Education Foundation (BHEF) – money that was raised at the inaugural Beverly Hills 5K Run/Walk & Fitness Blast on Jan. 28.
Celebrity trainer Dion Jackson, who was among the key members of the Beverly Hills 5K committee, said the amount far exceeded the original expected goal of $25,000.
“This is the beginning of a new Beverly Hills tradition proving we really are a healthy city,” said Jackson, whose company All Seasons Fitness Media partnered with BHEF, the City of Beverly Hills and local race management organization Run Racing to make the event happen. “We are already beginning to promote the 2019 event in the community.”
