BENEFITING: THE AMERICAN FRIENDS OF BEIT ISSIE SHAPIRO INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Please support the American Friends of Beit Issie Shapiro’s 2013 ING 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 will need to commit to raise at least $3,000 ($3,600 suggested) to help support AFOBIS’s work. We hope you’ll come to cheer on Team AFOBIS on November 3rd 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.
