In life, we are all challenged to make a difference and give back to others in need. Having been blessed with good health and success, I want to all do my part in making the life of children with disabilities exponentially better. It takes a truly important cause for me to do something as challenging as running/walking a mini marathon. Between training, fundraising and planning, the organization needs to be incredibly special. And that's what Shalva is. For children with disabilities and their families, life can often be difficult, disheartening and frightening. This is where Shalva comes in.
In this life-changing organization in Israel, every child becomes a cherished member of the Shalva family. Kids with disabilities become, "just kids," with friends and laughter, fun activities and beautiful memories. Children from birth through 21 years of age are serviced by the most professional, caring and compassionate staff and not only are the children taken care of and treasured, their family members are also incorporated into the Shalva family with warmth and genuine love.
So passionately do I feel about the well being of all children, that I've decided to walk the 10km in the Jerusalem Marathon on March 15th, 2019. I plan to raise $5,000 and I hope you will help me reach this lofty goal by making a donation. Your support is vital to my success in this race, and will make such a huge difference in the lives of these wonderful children. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and the Team Shalva website makes donations quick, easy, and secure.
Please visit my personal page at http://www.run4shalva.org/my/susyou today. If your company has a matching gift program, please let me know so I can send that information to Shalva so your gift can be doubled or tripled. I will keep you up to date on my training progress for my run, and of course I'll let you know how the race goes! Please feel free to share this email with anyone who you think might be interested in giving to this awesome organization.
On behalf of the children and families of Shalva, thank you for your time and contribution.
