My name is Sara Weinstein and this March I will be running in the Jerusalem Marathon on Team Shalva! This marathon has become known as one of the hardest in the world, so why on earth am I doing it? The reason is Shalva. For the past 28 years, Shalva has been providing transformative care to children with disabilities and their families, all done in a warm and loving environment. On top of that, it is a non-profit organization. Every cent raised goes to the vital Shalva programs. This will be my second consecutive year running the half marathon in honor of Shalva. Last year, I had the most amazing experience to go to Israel, supporting team Shalva, for a meaningful shabbaton, with Jewish teens from London, Canada, and all over America. I know that the more money I raise the bigger help I will be to contributing to such an amazing cause! Don’t worry, I’ll handle the training and achy feet, but I need your help to reach my goal. Together, we can support a truly amazing place.
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity,
