Jerusalem 2020

Marathon
March 20 2020 Running Hand in Hand for Disability Inclusion

Brian Racer


Hi! I'm Brian and I'll be running for Team Yachad in the Jerusalem Marathon this year! Last year, I pushed myself like I never had before, and put myself through excruciating pain, to conquer the hills of Jerusalem and complete the whole 10k. I wanted to spice it up a little for this year, so I signed up to run the full marathon. Just a little bit of a jump.

Yachad is an organization that promotes inclusion for people with special needs, with chapters in all of our local Jewish communities. I have been a part of Yachad for 3 years, and I can tell you firsthand that you will not find a happier atmosphere in a room full of people than at a Yachad event or Shabbaton. Yachad has given me an insight into true happiness, and I have seen it male an impact on so many people's lives, including mine. Knowing that I am running for Yachad is the only thing in the world that could push me past my limits for months straight, as aside from my last name, I am not really a runner.

So please, if you could be generous and donate some money towards my $3000 goal, you know the money will be going to helping people in your own communities feel accepted and valued. I will proudly be sporting my Yachad gear for all 26.2 miles (or 42 kilometers), so that everybody can see how devoted I am to this incredible organization.
