THE STORY:

I am so excited to run my first New York Marathon in support of American Jewish World Service

My AJWS story began in Senegal in the summer of 2007. I was a graduate intern at Tostan (a long-time AJWS grantee) which does incredible human rights work in communities across Senegal and throughout Africa. With AJWS’s support, Tostan developed an educational module that taught women about their rights to health, safety and dignity, and catalyzed the widespread abandonment of the harmful practice of female genital cutting. While this is a grave public health and human rights issue, the Senegalese people who were taking on this problem did so with courage, creativity and enthusiasm– essential ingredients for real, lasting change. I was so thrilled when I was offered a job at AJWS in Los Angeles in 2013, and have loved building our community of supporters in LA. Most of you have heard me rave about our incredible grantees (like Tostan), our awesome events and our unbelievably generous community of donors and activists. Now’s your chance to join the movement!  

I ran six marathons before having my son in 2013, and I am so grateful for this opportunity to get my former runner self back in gear. Please support me by contributing to AJWS, an organization I love working for and a cause I believe in deeply. Together, we will support grassroots partners in communities from Haiti to Cambodia to Senegal who are working tirelessly for lasting change. As they say in Senegal (and in so many other ways throughout the world), “Ndank, ndank, mooy japp golo ci naay.” Slowly, slowly, we trap the monkey in the bush. Pursuing human rights is a marathon, not a sprint. 

THANK YOU!
