For the second year in a row, I will be running in the Jerusalem Marathon in order to raise money for MS research, specifically the stem cell research being conducted here in Hadassah Ein Karem.
MS is a degerenative, neurological, autoimmune disease that expresses itself through attacks that hamper a wide array of physical and mental functions - from walking, fine motor skills, use of hands or legs, feeling, vision, and more. Approximately 2.5 million people worldwide have MS.
Last year we managed to bring over 20 runners and raise over 20,000 NIS
This year, our goal is 5x that-100 runners to heighten awareness, and 100,000 NIS raised to find the cure. Please help us reach our goal by donating!
100% of these donations will be going to the Hadassah medical center, specifically the MS center.
Please consider donating whatever you can!
