As a 15 year old Jewish Canadian teenager who feels privileged in so many ways, making a difference in the world is becoming increasingly important to me. That's why I am joining Team Shalva this spring.
I am really hoping you can help me out.
Please consider sponsoring me for the Jerusalem Marathon where I will run side by side with Shalva's team of children with special needs and marathon runners. We will represent a beautiful demonstration of a community that promotes health, inclusion, and the celebration of life.
By sponsoring me, you will be supporting thousands of amazing children with disabilities and their family members who find hope and joy at Shalva.
Shalva is an organization that provides and dedicates transformative care for individuals with disabilities, empowering their families, and promoting social inclusion. It’s programs offer a host of therapies, inclusive educational frameworks, sports and wellness, recreational activities, as well as respite and family support. It is an incredible place that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for everyone free of charge regardless of race, religion or financial capability.
This past summer, I was fortunate enough to be paired with a camper with special needs in the Tikvah program at Camp Ramah. I taught him how to play baseball, frisbee, and tennis. He taught me patience, how to be more intuitive and accepting, and how to have a smile on my face no matter while life throws at you.
I greatly appreciate your time and I hope you consider making a donation on my page! Anything you can give helps to make a difference.
All donations are 100% tax deductible and 100% of the funds raised go directly to the Shalva Organization.
