Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running 10k in the Jerusalem Marathon, as part of Team Shalva!
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.
This run is especially meaningful to me as I will also be running in memory of my late grandfather, known to me as Zaide. Having sadly passed away just a few months after I was born, I feel that running in his memory means I can keep him with me in the next big thing I do in my life.
I am doing my part to support this amazing organization by running, and I need your help.
I'll take care of the training, and the finish line if you'll help me by donating to this worthy cause. 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, support and generosity.
