Welcome to my 10K sponsor page!
This year on my 17th Birthday (20th of March) I won't be having my first driving lesson, or even celebrating with my family or friends in England. I will be running 10K 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.
Whilst on Israel Tour in the summer, I got to see first hand how Shalva has been providing care to individuals with disabilities and their family members in the most warm and loving environment that I have never seen anywhere else. From infancy through adulthood, this organisation 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 organisation 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, instead of getting me something for my birthday. 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.
