Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
This marathon has been dubbed one of the hardest in the world, so why on earth am I doing it?
I moved to Public School this year, and I am trying to do the most I can to donate to Israel. Now more than ever, that I’m not in a Jewish school, I’m trying to connect with the holy land. I am going to donate to kids with disabilities in Israel, which is exactly what shalva is doing. Furthermore, I will be running the Jerusalem Marathon in March, which is a great deal. I will be running with the Shalva team, Shalva has been providing transformative care to children with disabilities and their family members in the most warm and loving environment for the past 28 years. The new state-of-the-art Shalva National Center opened in 2016 where they are now servicing literally thousands of children per week, free of charge.
Simply put, Shalva is an incredible place. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and cares for children from birth through 21 years. The staff is so loving and kind, to both the children and their families, and goes above and beyond to make the center a home away from home.
I am doing my part to support this amazing organization by running, and I need your help.
I'll take care of the training, the achy feet and the finish line if you'll help me by donating to this worthy cause. All donations are 100% tax deductible, anything you can give would help me reach my goal, and together we'll be supporting this truly special place.
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity.
