Seven years ago, an idea was formed to help and give strength to a long time friend who’s life had been turned upside down. In 2014 Dina Hurwitz’s husband, Rabbi Yitzi, was diagnosed with the incurable neurological disease ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Out of love, Run4Yitzi was born.
Run4Yitzi started out as one friend’s idea to run a half marathon and raise $10,000, to relieve the incredible cost of ever-growing medical bills. Word got out about the idea, and suddenly Run4Yitzi became a TEAM. Each year since that first marathon the team grew exponentially! Not only is this a team to raise money for the Hurwitz Family Fund, but it is a team that has a heart and soul. To run and raise funds are a labor of love.
This year is Rabbi Yitzi’s 50th birthday, as our gift we have raised the fundraising goal to $250,000.00! Please, make a donation, spread the word, and take part in making this birthday gift a reality!
As always, we thank you for your support!
