MY MESSAGE

This upcoming May 2017, I will be bikeriding with over 100 fellow cyclists through Israel to raise money for the inclusion programs at Camp Ramah so kids with special needs (e.g. Autism, Down Syndrome, Developmental Delays,etc.) can have a similar childhood that I was fortunate to have with supporting resources.  We will be riding along the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea, making important stops to support the communities in Sderot and the Western Negev, before heading to Jerusalem and through the Judean HIlls.  It all culminates in Masada (No, I'm not biking up there!) and all in the name of inclusion.  Inclusion so children like my dear friend (or rather, Sister) Benay Josselson's son Rafi can have the same amazing camp experience I had as a kid without being relegated to a separate distinct camp.  

Why am I doing this? Other than the obvious of seeing just how much Rafi has already benefited from the Tikvah program, I am doing it in the name of "Connection."  Connection to my two "happy places" I had as a kid which include: riding my bike and attending camp. Those two experiences, mutually exclusive actually, have had profound effects on the person I am today.  As someone who deeply believes in the worth of developing a community, I am a product of being part of this community from a young age.  And I want kids like Rafi to be afforded the same opportunity. My fifth time going back to Israel, I am honored and excited to do this with my best friend and the Director of the Tikvah Program in The Poconos, Orlee Krass.  Together our team effort will donate over $7,200 to this valuable cause.
I am asking for your help in raising money - maybe you're going to donate because you know a kid with autism, maybe you'll give because you had similar fortune that I have had and you want to pay it forward, OR perhaps you need a tax write-off OR I've guilted you into it.  All great reasons and all kindly appreciated :)
