Dear family & friends,

I’m excited to inform you that I am running with ALEH Ascend to raise money for ALEH, Israel’s foremost network of care for children with severe complex disabilities.

First, some background.
Why did I choose to run for ALEH? Well, ALEH provides over 750 children and young adults with severe complex disabilities specialized services they need to live a quality life: residential living, medical care, rehabilitative and therapeutic treatment, special education, vocational training opportunities, and social and cultural activities. ALEH’s four residential facilities, located in Jerusalem, Bnei Brak, Gedera, and the Negev, are their homes and ALEH's dedicated staff and volunteers are their family – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, ALEH provides thousands of outpatient sessions to children with milder disabilities who are able to live at home.

Thanks to ALEH these children are able to live in much the same way as non-disabled children: attending school, participating in vocational training programs, and enjoying activities such as swimming at the beach or touring the countryside. Integration programs involving family, volunteers, school children and IDF soldiers promote acceptance of the disabled within the community at large.

I hope you will be able help me reach this goal by making a generous tax-deductible donation.

Thank you in advance for your support!

I look forward to keeping you updated on my progress!
