Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running as part of Team Shalva in the Jerusalem Marathon for my second time!
This marathon has been dubbed one of the hardest in the world, so why on earth am I doing it?
The reason is Shalva.
Given the scary experience I had last summer and the time I spent in rehab at Bloorview McMillan, I have come to truly appreciate and understand everything Shalva stands for.
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.
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, it means a lot to me and the kids at Shalva!!!
