I am excited to share with you that I am an official member of Team Sharsheret for the 2020 Jerusalem Marathon.
I am inspired to undertake this rigorous challenge as I am doing it in support of an amazing organization – Sharsheret, a national not for profit organization that creates a safe community for women facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer and their families at every stage of life and at every stage of cancer - from before diagnosis, during treatment and into the survivorship years.
It is particularly meaningful for me to race on behalf of Sharsheret because I have a client and friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. While this person chooses to remain anonymous, watching her fight has inspired me to fight for her as well. Every time that we speak I find myself asking how can I make a difference? How can I take her pain away? How can I support her in her fight? By taking on this personal challenge and joining with the other members of Team Sharsheret I think I have found my answer.
As a member of this incredible Team, I have pledged to raise funds in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. I am asking you to please support me in my athletic and fundraising efforts as I take on this challenge. My flights and the race are paid for which means everything you donate will go directly towards Sharsheret and of course all contributions are tax-deductible.
Thank you, in advance, for your support.
