Dear family & friends,
I’m so excited! I will be running with ALEH Ascend in the upcoming Jerusalem Marathon to raise money for ALEH, Israel’s network of care for children with severe complex disabilities, to promote disability inclusion in Israel!
I'm ready to hit the pavement and start training, but I need your help to reach my fundraising goal.
Why do I love ALEH? Because ALEH is a home and a loving family for more than 750 Israeli children with severe complex disabilities – a warm environment that allows them to develop well beyond their initial prognoses and live happy, dignified, and meaningful lives. They also promote the TRUE INCLUSION of every Israeli child, regardless of the severity of his or her disability. In fact, ALEH residents will be participating in the Jerusalem Marathon, too!
Training for the Jerusalem Marathon hasn’t been easy, and the race is sure to be a challenge, but I am inspired by ALEH's life-altering work – I will be propelled to the finish line knowing that I will be strengthening my body, enriching my soul, and improving the world with every stride.
I hope you will be able help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,500 by making a generous tax-deductible donation. Your support 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!
Thank you so much!
