Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
This marathon is considered one of the hardest in the world, and I'm doing it for Shalva. Shalva is dedicated to providing quality care for children with disabilities, empowering their families, and promoting social change. Shalva's non-denominational programs range from infancy to adulthood.
Shalva has been providing transformative care to children in the most warm and loving environment for the past 28 years. The new state-of-the-art Shalva National Center in Jerusalem opened in 2016 and is now servicing literally thousands of children per week, free of charge.
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 are so loving and kind, to both the children and their families, and go 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, whether you're donating in Canada, the U.S. or one of the other countries noted on the pledge page. Anything you can give would help me reach my goal, and together we'll be supporting this truly special place and these very special children.
Please watch the video. I hope that you're inspired like I was.
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity.
