Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
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, 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, and I need your help.
I started working with kids with special needs in 9th grade, and simply never stopped!
These kids have such an amazing impact on my life and I cant thank their parents enough for giving me the opportunity to be with them.
This year I am choosing to run in honor of my kid back at home in America, Ava.
Ava is a 7 year old girl who has cerebral palsy.
I worked with Ava for a long time now, and the impact that this little girl made on my life is unimaginable.
Im hoping that you guys can help me reach my goal not for me but for Ava, I know that it would mean the world not only to me but her family also.
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 contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, and 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.
