EL AL and ALEH – CYCLING FOR A GOOD CAUSE

EL AL and ALEH – CYCLING FOR A GOOD CAUSE

Saturday, April 16th, 2016


There’s more than one way to travel!

Executives from EL AL Israel Airlines USA participated in a 3-day bike ride to benefit ALEH and Alut. When the bike route ran past ALEH Negev, our amazing kids were more than happy to join in on the fun – thanks to their Therapeutic Biking Program, which furthers our residents’ mobility opportunities and enhances their physical fitness in a fun, social setting.

This is not the first time EL AL has partnered with ALEH for a good cause. For the past 10 years, the airline has been operating an initiative called “Small Change/Big Difference”. On every flight, EL AL invites passengers to donate leftover change in any currency by depositing it into envelopes available in the seat pockets. The money is then collected and sorted, converted to shekels and transferred by Bank Hapoalim directly to ALEH, Israel’s largest network of care for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and Alut, Israel’s national society for autistic children. With the help of these donations, the quality of life for hundreds of children is improved.

Thank you to EL AL for their continued friendship and support!
