EVENT: 2016 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

Michael (Moti) Hoffman

THE STORY:

Seventy one years ago, the world witnessed some of the most horrifying things humanity is capable of.  World War II came to an end and the world would only start to understand the magnitude of the holocaust.  Millions of people perished at the hands of the brutal Nazi regime.  If it weren't for actual witness accounts, it would truly be unbelievable.  But there were survivors and their accounts — testimony to an attempt to wipe out an entire people.  Survivors who's lives were shattered and their families brutally murdered.  

I am the grandson of 4 such survivors (z"l - may their memory be forever blessed).  My grandparents who tragically lost parents, spouses, and even children in Auschwitz and other camps were able to pick up the pieces and start new families and merited to see children, grandchildren, and even great-grandkids.  But so many survivors are living out their remaining time here in destitute and impoverished conditions.  Team Blue Card will be running the NYC marathon to help raise funds to aid surivors in need.

I will be running in memory of my grandparents (z"l) Dov, Moshe-Leib, Gitel, and Rivka and countless others and in honor of those still with us today!

-------------------------------

The Blue Card’s sole mission is to aid needy Holocaust survivors, majority of whom live approximately 200% below federal poverty line, by providing financial support.

The Blue Card is unique in that it provides both long-term ongoing support and emergency grants for basic human needs in the most caring way. Help is given in the form of cash grants issued directly to the client or to the provider of vital goods and services.

The grants are made for food, medical and home care, dental care, crisis and ongoing psychotherapy, health insurance, prescription drugs, personal emergency response system, housing, transportation, and various one-time emergencies.

In 2015, The Blue Card distributed $2,605,031 to nearly 2,500 Holocaust survivor households in the United States.
