BENEFITING: FRISCH SCHOOL
From David Ruditzky, The Frisch School Class of '92
"As you may have heard I, along with Jonathan Gellis '89, Bruce Badner '89, and Micky Goldschmidt, am embarking on an 8 day challenge to climb Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. The peak is 19,341 feet. During the months of training for this adventure, I had a lot of time to think, reflect and ponder. I have decided that I wanted to dedicate the climb to my father, Avram Ruditzky z"l, who passed away 28 years ago (when I was 14) and is missed every day. My father accomplished a lot in his short 44 years, both professionally and personally. Aside from raising his family, he was an entrepreneur who along with his partners owned and operated a number of successful businesses. He was both a friend to everyone and a leader who was incredibly involved in numerous Jewish organizations. Even today, I am still approached by both friends and strangers alike who mention the impact he had on their lives.
I know everyone has his/her personal favorite charities which is why I don't often request, but this means a lot to me which is why I am raising money for the establishment of the The Avram Ruditzky z’’l Athletic Fund at The Frisch School. This fund is being established to enhance the athletic program at Frisch. Additionally, funds raised will be used to provide aid for those students needing financial assistance with athletic related expenses. My fundraising goal is $19,341 representing the total number of feet needed to hike to get to the peak of the mountain.
My dad passed away when I was a freshman at Frisch and the school, along with my friends and family, was instrumental in helping me make it through. It would mean a lot to me and my family if we were able to raise funds in memory of my dad so his legacy lives on. Thank you in advance for your support."
