Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well. I wanted to tell you about my decision to run in the Jerusalem Marathon on March 15th, 2019 as part of Team Shalva, the largest team in the marathon. Shalva provides transformative care for individuals with disabilities in Israel, empowering their families and promoting social inclusion. All the services in this warm and welcoming organization are non-denominational and free of charge. Shalva's facilities and care is state of the art, including their fitness center with semi-Olympic and hydrotherapy pools, countless classrooms and therapy spaces used by programs from newborns and mothers through the after-school program for elementary and high school students. Shalva is also home to completely accessible parks, a 400-seat auditorium with unprecedented wheelchair access, a café with employees who are Shalva alumnae and much, much more. I am taking on this marathon and to be apart of this experience in honor of my dear friend Adeena Paknoush who passed away last January. She was such a huge role model for me and she always kept strong even when she was going through very difficult times. Adeena was the most caring and lovable person whose qualities didn't stop at just her friends, her love and compassion and her eagerness to help anyone even in the smallest way was felt by everyone who met her. I want to take this on for her and to continue doing work that is selfless and inspiring to others so that they can also follow and be apart of something greater. I want to help out the Shalva community and to help out all the inspirational kids who go through so much. This organization and this marathon mean a lot to me and it gives me a chance to go to Israel with so many other kids who feel the same way and want to show their support. I am so happy to be doing my part to support this inspiring organization by running, and I need your help to reach my fundraising goals. Your generous support will be much appreciated and you can sponsor me with a 100% tax deductible donation on the easy-to-use Team Shalva website. I hope that together we can help support this truly special place. On behalf of the children and families of Shalva, thank you in advance for your help and generosity. Sincerely, Blima Wertheim
