Welcome to Daniella's half- marathon sponsor page!
On 20/3/2020, I will be running as part of Team Shalva and as part of Team TenaflySmiles (my dad's team!) in the Jerusalem Marathon!
This is a half-marathon in Yerushalayim Ir HaKodesh, a city known for the past two millennia as one that has "harim saviv la", mountains surrounding it. And after running the 10K last year, I can tell you for a fact that nothing has changed since the times of David HaMelech.
Running 21.1km is crazy enough, why do it here?
To that, I answer, why do it anywhere else? And I am so honored to be able to run for an organization known for supporting the many who are scaling "figurative" mountains in their life: 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. And I personally know three individuals who have gained tremendously from their Shalva experience, not to mention the hundreds, if not thousands of others for whom Shalva is their life support.
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 knees and the finish line bez"H! Please 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.
Thank you in advance for your help and generosity.
