This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
This past summer I had the privilege of being in Jerusalem on an amazing summer program. One day the program went to the Shalva center in Jerusalem and I was immediately blown away. The facilities are beautiful and offer anything you can think of from swimming pools and sensory rooms to dentist offices and all types of therapy for the participants. I got to see all the Shalva participants really enjoying and benefiting from everything Shalva has to offer. They have hard struggles yet still have the biggest smile on their faces and are living their lives to the fullest! Right after this visit, I knew I wanted to be part of this special organization.
Shalva is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The staff is so loving and goes above and beyond to make the center a home away from home. They have been providing transformative care to individuals with disabilities and their family members in the warmest and most loving environment for nearly 30 years. From infancy through adulthood, this amazing organization provides leading-edge therapies, inclusive educational frameworks, social and recreational activities, employment training, independent living, respite programs regardless of religion, ethnic background or financial capability!
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 worthy cause. All donations are 100% tax-deductible, anything you can give would help me reach my goal, and together we'll be supporting this truly special place.
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity. Tizku l'mitzvot!
