BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIANS & JEWS
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2014
I am running the annual San Francisco Marathon on July 27th 2014. I also have the unique opportunity to participate in whats known as "Worth the Hurt". I will be running the course in one direction starting at midnight, and finishing just before the official start of the San Francisco Marathon at 5:30 am, of which I will be running as well for another 26.2 miles. In total I will be running 52.4 miles in what is essentially a double, or ultra, marathon. I have started a mandatory fundraiser and must raise atleast $1,000 dollars for a charity of my choice. All funds will be going directly to the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, founded in 1983 by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein to promote understanding between Jews and Christians and build broad support for Israel and other shared concerns.
