Last year I ran my first marathon. I’m a terrible runner. But I trained and I became a mediocre runner. However, what I didn’t expect to happen was to become a champion FRIEND-raiser. All of you guys really brought it! You donated to this wonderful cause and it inspired me past my wildest dreams to actually do this insane thing again! Your support uplifted me on days I didn’t think I could run one more step. Last year with the help of all of you, we raised over $11,000 on this page and this year we’re gonna do it again baby!

This year the team leader, my best friend, Brocha, also made me team captain on the WEST COAST. That means I get to bring this incredible experience to more runners. It also means I’ve roped my son and my mom into running next to me too! Well my son will be WAY ahead of me, he’s 17, which means he’ll be finishing the race three days before I do.

The best part of this experience is doing it with my two best friends, Brocha Lipkind and Dina Hurwitz. The three of us have been running alongside each other since we’re kids. We have been lifting each other up as long as I can remember. To watch Rabbi Yitzi struggle so valiantly, live so purposefully, and use his platform to promote goodness has been my inspiration for running. I feel blessed to call Rabbi Yitzi and Dina family, and I’m humbled to know all of my friends who have donated to this page can now call them their family too.

To infinity and beyond!

Thank you for your donation!! You are literally aiding and abetting my mediocrity.
