Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
My name is Maya Majer, I started high school this year.
I wanted to tell you about my decision to run in the Jerusalem Marathon on March 15th, 2019. You may not know this about me, but I love children. Last year, I volunteered to work in the after school daycare at my school, Beit Bialik. I started high school at CHAT where I heard about this place SHALVA an organization helping children with special needs and it caught my attention. My high school offered interested students to be part of Team Shalva, which is the largest team in the marathon and so I volunteered!
I want to tell you a little about Shalva.
Shalva is very unique. It is an organization that provides care for children with disabilities. It is not just a daycare. It is one of the only places in the world that provides very high quality care for children with disabilities and they accept children from all over the world regardless of religion and it is free! Sadly often families who have kids with special needs require special care that are really expensive and families can’t afford it! People come from all over the world to Shalva. Shalva doesn’t ask for money from the families that are serviced there since they know that they know they can’t afford it. As well, the care they provide including, the facilities, the program and staff they have are all at top of their field. I think that is very special!
I am so happy to have the opportunity to support this 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.
