BENEFITING: JEWISH CARING NETWORK GEVURAS YARDEN
EVENT: JCN Women's 5K Care Run
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2012
I'm actually going to exercise!! I know! Crazy, right? But it's for a really good cause. I'm walking a 5k to benefit the Jewish Caring Network, an amazing organization that helps when someone in a family is diagnosed with a serious or a chronic dehabilitating illness. For example, last year my friend's 15 year old son was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Beyond the panic of the diagnosis, they have 5 kids and this was right before Passover. How in the world were they going to run to doctor's appointments and treatments with their son and also care for their other kids AND get ready for Passover? Jewish Caring Network stepped in to support them and have stuck by them for the past year whenever they needed help. When something like this is going on in a family, sometimes people are uncomfortable and stay away because they don't want to say or do the wrong thing. The volunteers from Jewish Caring Network go where others fear to tread and lighten the load for families dealing with life-changing illnesses. Please donate and help me support this amazing organization!
