Welcome to my marathon sponsor page!
This March I will be running 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.
Three days after Yair was born, shocked and shaken trying to understand what hit us and what we are up for. I called Shalva since I understood that they might have a program for DS...
When they answered the phone I told them I just had a baby boy with DS and would like to meet them, that was the first pure and happy MAZAL TOV that I got, and The little I knew what an amazing place I just got my one and only son in to.
Shalva focuses on the "can do" rather then on the "can't do", on the "abilities" rather then on the "disabilities" !
Without Shalva Yair wouldn't be so advanced physically and cognitively.
I am just one out of hundreds of families with abilities that benefit on daily/weekly/monthly basis from this amazing organization!
We all owe Shalva a הכרת הטוב for making this world a better place for us and our families, and especially I owe them for being there when I was lost and confused seeking the best for my child.
Simply put, Shalva is an incredible place and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
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 contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, and 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.
