ALEH Marches Forward – Third Annual Event a Huge Success!
For the third straight year, a procession of over 300 marchers, ALEH residents, their families, caregivers, and volunteers and friends from around the globe, set out from ALEH’s Jerusalem facility to cross over the Jerusalem Chords Bridge in a powerful and symbolic display to encourage the integration of Israel’s disabled community within Israeli society.
The festivities, which took place on Wednesday, March 27, were capped off with singing, dancing, and a ceremony during which over 500 balloons were released into the air to signify the unrestricted potential of Israel’s disabled children.
Thanks to ALEH’s innovative programming, severely disabled children of all ages are able to live much like their non-disabled peers, are accepted by a wider segment of the population, and develop far beyond the boundaries of their initial prognoses. Gatherings like this one have curative powers in that they both benefit our severely disabled children and heal the world.
