EVENT DATE: Jun 08, 2013
I am running 4 miles for Israel on Israel Day http://www.nyrr.org/races-and-events/2013/celebrate-israel-run-4m
I am also running 10k for the Oakly NY Road Runner event http://www.nyrr.org/races-and-events/2013/oakley-new-york-mini-10k
Why am I running my buns off you ask? Several years ago, my brother and I co-founded a charity to help a particular niche in Israeli society. I mostly do operations/admin in NY while my brother directly leads the effort.
About: We are dedicated to the safety, healing, and self-sufficiency of battered women and their children in Israel. To that end, we offer emergency relief services and life/work skills to enable these women to support themselves and their families. We work to end domestic violence and its far-reaching impact through emergency housing, crisis counseling, financial aid and job assistance, in order to create a world where every woman and child lives with dignity.
