Welcome to our team sponsor page!
This March we 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 are we 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 due to the holiday when the campus 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
Simply put, Shalva is an incredible place and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The staff is so loving and kind and goes above and beyond to make the center a
home away from home.
We feel that this amazing experience will be even more meaningful running as part of Team Berman for Shalva. Running beside our friends will give us that extra boost of support we will need when taking on those Jerusalem hills. We are so proud to be representing our community in doing this big mitzvah!
We are doing our part to support this amazing organization and the Shalva National Crisis Response Center by running, and we need your help.
We will take care of the training, the achy feet and the finish line if you'll help us by donating to this worthy cause. All donations are 100% tax-deductible, anything you give will help us reach our goal, and together we'll be supporting this truly special place. If your company has a matching gift program, please let me know so I can connect you with Shalva.
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity.
