THE STORY:

I'm running the LA Marathon for Beit T'Shuvah March 17 and I'd like your support!

Beit T'Shuvah is a unique organization: a nonprofit residential treatment center (for people struggling with addictive disorders) that combines twelve step work with Jewish wisdom and spirituality - and a wide arrange of artistic and active therapies (music, painting, surf therapy, yoga, etc) and with psychotherapy; a rocking synagogue that hosts inspirational services for all; and above all, a healing community where lost souls find meaning and connection.  In addition, they have a wonderful prevention/youth outreach program that is very effective.  To learn more, check out their website: http://www.beittshuvah.org

I am currently the chair of the board of Beit T'Shuvah - as well as a clinical volunteer - and my involvement with Beit T'Shuvah has had a profound impact on my life as I have become a grateful member of the Beit T'Shuvah community.  This year I decided to run with the Beit T'Shuvah marathon team, which has been raising money for Beit T'Shuvah for the past four years.  I have never run a marathon before - and probably will never do so again.  I've been in active training since September and ran my first half marathon in October.  My knees aren't loving it, but physical therapy seems to be helping.  And showing up every Sunday morning at 7am for the big team training runs has been exhilarating. The team consists of current residents of Beit T'Shuvah, graduates of the program and community supporters - and being part of it just deepens my love for the community.

I am hoping to raise at least $47,160 (a hundred chai/mile for the 26.2 miles of the marathon : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chai_(symbol) ) - and I hope you'll help.  Since Beit T'Shuvah has a policy of not turning away anyone due to lack of funds, we need to raise several million dollars a year to serve the hundreds of people in active residential and outpatient care each year.  It costs about $50,000 to house, treat, and feed an individual for a year, and we have been fortunate that we continue to benefit from the generosity of many donors to cover those costs.  But it takes a village - or kibbutz, if you will - to make it happen.  

Please consider supporting me and Beit T'Shuvah in this effort.  Every bit counts - and donations are tax deductible.

Thanks so much,
Bill Resnick
