Dear family & friends,

I’m excited to inform you that I this Friday, March 9, I am running 10K in the Jerusalem marathon to raise money for ALEH, Israel’s foremost network of care for children with severe complex disabilities. I've been training and ready to hit the pavement , but I need your help to reach my fundraising goal.

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.

I plan to raise $250 by race day, and I hope you will be able help me reach this goal by making a generous donation.
If everyone could donate just $18, I believe I could meet my goal!

Your support is crucial to this effort, so please visit my dedicated fundraising page on the ALEH Ascend website and make a donation today:

The ALEH Ascend website makes donating quick, easy, and secure.

Thank you in advance for your support. Together, we will ensure the unrestricted growth and true inclusion of every Israeli child, regardless of the severity of his or her disability.

I look forward to keeping you updated on my progress!
