Are you a runner?
Do you want to be a runner?
How about a walker?
Ok better question: Do YOU want to run for Yitzi Hurwitz?
This will be the 4th year TEAM RUN4YITZI is running the Miami Half Marathon, happening on January 28, 2018. We will be once again raising $50,000.00 to help the family with medical/living costs.
ALS is not only a cruel disease, but the medical equipment and care needed on a daily basis is financially exorbitant. And don’t forget this is a wonderful family with 7 beautiful children!
If you are interested in running on a team full of heart, determination and passion, please send us a message.
