Hi, my name is Rachel Tuachi. Many of you know I suffer from a hair pulling disorder, Trichotillomania (Trich). Trich is a compulsive hair pulling disorder caused by anxiety, stress, and depression. Trich has affected EVERY aspect of my life; physically and emotionally. Unlike your average 17 year old girl, I wear a wig. For years, I felt “different”. Luckily, my warm community, family, and friends accept me and love me! Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to give back to the community that so willing accepted me! For years my battle with depression and anxiety felt like a curse. I was confused and furious. Furious that this was the life chosen for me. Later, I began to understand that my disorder isn’t a curse, but rather, a gift. It has given me the opportunity to help so many people. I even decided to become a social media influencer. I often remind my followers that they are beautiful and that beauty lies within. Our midot and acts of chessed (charity) are what truly make us beautiful. Shalva supports thousands of families, and with our help, thousands more! Every and any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance and tezku lemitzvot!! 🥰 -Rachel Tuachi 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 dubbed 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. 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'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.
