Total Raised To Date: 13,255 USD
Exceeded my goal by: 755 USD

In February, I will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro on behalf of Shalva's children and families.

This mountain is the largest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the most challenging, so why on earth am I doing it?

The reason is Shalva.

Shalva provides transformative care to 2,000 individuals with disabilities and support to their family members, in the warmest and most loving environment. From infancy through adulthood, this incredible 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, I am climbing the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime mountain to benefit Shalva, so that their families are able to conquer their personal mountains on a daily basis.

Shalva has a special place in my heart. I first started fundraising for them in 2013 when one of my teachers brought forward the opportunity to run the Jerusalem half-marathon on Shalva's behalf. The fundraising and training were very tough; the toughest thing I've done up to that point, but when we finally visited the Shalva facility and saw first hand how they help the community, I was certain the hard work was more than worth it. From that moment on, I knew Shalva would always remain near and dear to me as an important and inspiring organization. Over the following two years I again fundraised and trained to run the half-marathon for Shalva. When I saw the opportunity to climb4Shalva I couldn't say no. This challenge is going to be the hardest one yet. I am doing my part to support this amazing organization with my climb, and I need your help.

I'll take care of the training, the achy feet, 8 days in a tent and the summit 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.
Together we'll be supporting this truly special place and changing the lives of thousands of children.

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 and generosity.
