Please support the American Friends of Beit Issie Shapiro’s 2016 New York City Marathon participants as they run 26.2 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 at least $3,600 to help support AFOBIS’s work. We hope you’ll come to cheer on Team AFOBIS on November 6th as they take on all five boroughs and race to the finish line to help raise much needed funds to support children with disabilities in Israel and throughout the world
