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 considered to be 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 nearly 30 years.
I have always enjoyed learning about how other people with different needs manage in different settings.
Along with that, we all need a place that is built to tend to our specific needs.
For example, I have struggled with anxiety for a long time, and I have been through and done many things in attempt to help myself overcome anything from holding me back.
I want to help the clients at Shalva do the same.
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!
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.
I am doing my part to support this amazing organization by running the Jerusalem Marathon, 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. 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, and thank you for believing in what I'm trying to do.
