My Fundraising Goal:
Total Raised To Date:
Well, it's finally time! Having arranged four groups to take on this amazing challenge in the past 7 years and seen some 70 people step up (and come back), as I approach my 'half-century birthday' I feel that I cannot do so without doing something really significant to help the families at Shalva.
Having been involved with Shalva for over 10 years I have been privileged to see first hand that amazing work that goes on, all day every day.
I have been part of the journey, with the growth of the organization both physically, in terms of the move to what is now the largest center of its kind globally, and also in terms of the number of families we are helping both within Israel and now globally.
I know that taking on this mountain is going to test me in so many ways, as I face sub zero temperatures, sleep in a tent for 9 nights, have limited internet connectivity to name a few. However, I also know that I will be inspired to give it my all as I think of the children who come to Shalva every day, who face their challenges with a smile and such positivity and for all of the families who do everything to provide their child with the best opportunities in life.
I hope to share that enthusiasm with my fellow climbers and encourage anyone who is considering this adventure to join me...it's going to be fabulous!
If you're not minded to join me then I thank you for any support you can give that will enable Shalva to continue its wonderful work.
