JERUSALEM MARATHON 2015 – Friday, March 13, 2015

RUNNING TO RAISE AWARENESS ON BEHALF OF ALEH’S SPECIAL-NEEDS KIDS!

Each according to his own pace…

The group running on behalf of ALEH’s kids unites a spectrum of runners ranging in age and level of fitness, and taking part in different tracks of the race.  Whether you exercise regularly or never practice, whether you are aged 8 or 80 – you have a place on TEAM ALEH.

Anyone can take part – even ALEH’s children who will ‘run’ in their wheelchairs and will be an integral part of the Marathon team effort.

PLANNING TO RUN IN THE MARATHON?

Join the ALEH Team, get your special ALEH running shirt and help promote awareness of ALEH’s special-needs children.

Just email:  marathon.aleh@gmail.com  and include these details:  Full name, Telephone/contact info, email, and your T-shirt size.

You will receive a return email with a user name for “Team ALEH” – which will qualify you for a discount when you register for the marathon on the Jerusalem Municipality website.

T-shirts cost 20 NIS, to be paid upon delivery or pickup – we will be in touch to organize the method you prefer.

The Community Track:  Enjoy a great social experience – WHILE helping to encourage integration of ALEH’s children within the community at large!

Groups and individuals are invited to join ALEH’s children in a special Community Race Track.

Just send an email to marathon.aleh@gmail.com including contact person, number of participants and T-shirt sizes.  Every participant will receive a T-shirt, which they will wear as they proudly run alongside ALEH’s children (cost of each T-shirt is 20 NIS, to be paid upon delivery or pickup of the shirts).

Not able to actively run?  YOU CAN STILL take part in the race for a better future for ALEH’s kids!

Even if you can’t personally take part in the Marathon, you can help support ALEH’s children by donating to the cause.  Your support promotes ALEH’s belief that every individual has the right to self-fulfillment and the ability to achieve it.

Proceeds will go towards the purchase of specialized equipment that will help ALEH’s children integrate within the community.

ALEH strives to give its special children the same opportunities and advantages afforded to their peers; like other children their age, they enjoy a stimulating and invigorating outing to the shops or parks, and greatly benefit from exposure to the beauty of nature and the outside world.    And in addition to helping Aleh residents become more sociable, outgoing and communicative, these public outings also further community awareness and integration of special-needs people, encouraging acceptance amongst the greater population.

But for special-needs children, there are major logistical challenges inherent in planning these outings. We are seeking to raise funding to purchase the following specialized equipment so that ALEH’s children can enjoy new experiences, together with the community at large.

  • Portable oxygen canister
  • Mobile suction device
  • Walkers
  • Mobility Hoist suitable for outdoor use
