Hey everyone! I've decided to run a marathon this July 4 in honor of my father Jay Gottlieb who tragically lost his life to Covid-19 on April 13, 2020. Given the many issues plaguing our nation, I have decided to raise money for three charities all supporting different causes. All three organizations do incredible work and aid in causes that are extremely important to both my father and myself.
Heart to Heart International strengthens communities through improving health access, providing humanitarian development and administering crisis relief worldwide. During the Covid crisis, they have been distributing urgently needed equipment and medication in America and around the world.
The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.
The Wounded Warrior Project provides a variety of programs and services to veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military.
Through his kindness and selflessness, my father worked tirelessly in the pursuit of bettering society. We are facing a watershed moment in American history and how we respond will have an effect on our country and the world for generations to come.
I hope we can all continue to be the change we want to see in the world. Nothing would have made him more proud. Thank you for your support!
