about team shalva

What is TEAM Shalva?
Team Shalva is a worldwide family that brings the joy of sports to people of all abilities. We are a diverse group of over 600 runners who travel from all over the world to Israel to participate in the Jerusalem Marathon in support of Shalva. Team Shalva is also the first and the largest (and we believe the coolest) team in the marathon. In 2019 we’re celebrating 10 years and it’s going to be an experience you don’t want to miss!
10 years
why should you join?

Because you want to make a difference. Because together we are the power of many as we raise the banner of hope, love and human dignity for thousands of children and their families.

Running side by side in Shalva running gear, Shalva's team of children with special needs and marathon runners represent a beautiful demonstration of a community that promotes health, inclusion, and the celebration of life.

what is included?

Following months of marathon training and fundraising for the Shalva cause, the Team Shalva members come together for a beautiful weekend in Jerusalem with many events, a Shalva tour and the marathon itself.
