Please support the American Friends of Beit Issie Shapiro’s 2016 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon participants as they run 13.1 miles to help provide innovative services and programs for children with disabilities in Israel. Through tireless training and dedication, each runner has committed to raising funds to help support AFOBIS’s work. We hope you’ll come to cheer on Team AFOBIS on March 20th, 2016 as they race to the finish line to help raise much needed funds to support children with disabilities in Israel and throughout the world.
