Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
This marathon has been dubbed one of the hardest in the world, so why on earth
am I doing it?
The reason is Shalva.
Shalva has been providing transformative care to individuals with disabilities and
their family members in the warmest and most loving environment for over 30
years. From infancy through adulthood, this amazing organization provides leading-
edge therapies, inclusive educational frameworks, social and recreational activities,
employment training, independent living, and respite programs regardless of
religion, ethnic background or financial capability!
At the sudden onset of the war in Israel, Shalva stepped up in supporting as many
people as they could as fast as they could. They have opened their doors as a
National Crisis Response Center welcoming over 200 families from the South
providing both the physical safety and emotional support the individuals so
desperately need. Shalva is also homing 100 teenage girls and the staff, from a
youth-at-risk program on a kibbutz in the south that miraculously were not at their
center when it was completely destroyed. They are
also providing day care programing for evacuated children. Shalva's emergency
campaign along with their consistent care of 1000 children with disabilities is
I am supporting Shalva, and their National Crisis Response Center, by running in the marathon - and while I will take care of the training and BEH" crossing the finish line, I need your help to raise funds to get there.
All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent
allowed by law, and anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated. Together, we'll be supporting an incredible organization!
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity!
