Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon!
I am running in honor of my grandmother, Marsha Holzer z''l. In 2016 my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. While my grandmother's Alzheimer's progressed she stopped knowing who I am but always recognized that I am important to her. The way that I stayed close with my grandmother is through music. I started playing guitar in 2016 when she was diagnosed and I played guitar and sang to her every time I visited her.
Running the Jerusalem Marathon seems like the perfect thing to do in her honor because of the person she was. My grandmother was always a big supporter of Israel. Every time I mentioned Israel to her she got excited whether it was before or after her Alzheimer's progressed she was always excited to hear about Israel. In addition running with Shalva is something she would have loved because it is helping people. My grandmother is my role model because of how kind she was. Her legacy is to help people no matter what and by running with Shalva I think she would be proud of me.
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.
