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.
