Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will have the honor (BeEzrat Hashem) of running as a part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon
Why support Shalva and it's mission?
An explanation you can find is in its very name: Shalva. In Hebrew, "שלוה" or "shalva" translates to "tranquility". Shalva has been providing transformative care to individuals with special needs and their family members in the warmest and most loving environment for 30+ years. Such care leaves individuals with special needs and their families with a true feeling of serenity.
I personally have witnessed the difference when such reliable support is provided to those in need; two of my cousins have autism and thrive when their individual needs are fulfilled and when they are empowered to grow. At the same time, seeing my cousins' lives enriched by a loving support system imbues my family with tranquility.
In Israel, the Shalva organization likewise offers a loving and skilled support system dedicated to the transformation and empowerment of individuals with special needs and their families. Providing cutting-edge therapies, inclusive educational frameworks, social and recreational activities, employment training, independent living, respite programs, and more, Shalva serves those from infancy to adulthood- regardless of religion, ethnic background, or financial capability. What better way to celebrate Israel's upcoming 75th birthday than to support Shalva, an organization with a creative and all-caring devotion to all of Israel's citizens? 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 amazing cause. All contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, and anything you can give would help me reach my goal, and- only with your help can we support this truly special endeavor. If your company has a matching gift program, please let me know so I can connect you with Shalva.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more information,
Thank you so much for your help and generosity,
