Welcome to my marathon sponsor page! Thanks for visiting!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
This marathon has been said to be one of the hardest in the world, so why am I doing it?
The reason is Shalva. It's a wonderful organization and as an added benefit I get to run a marathon. It's my first so I'll be only doing half :-). I feel cool (very cool) them helping them and setting a new athletic goal for myself.
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.
I would love for you to take some time to watch this video
