THE STORY:

This is my first year running on Team Blue Card, a group that is running the Miami Marathon and Half Marathon to benefit the Blue Card, an organization that raises money for Miami-Dade's neediest Holocaust Survivors.

More than 75,000 Holocaust survivors live in the United States today, and nearly a third of those live beneath the poverty level. As these men and women age, they are plagued with the consequences of surviving the most devastating conditions imaginable, including poor nutrition and no medical care.

Many survivors came to this country after World War II and worked in menial jobs. Tiny pensions from those jobs, social security, and Medicaid simply cannot keep up with the financial needs of this most vulnerable population. Most of them never received any pensions or payments administered by The Claims Conference. They are frequently desperate for uncovered expenses such as dental care, hearing aids, and transportation to doctors.

After all they have suffered, these men and women SHOULD NOT have to chose between paying for food or paying for medicine. Dignity was forcibly taken from them during the Holocaust, and The Blue Card ensures that its clients don't lose their dignity again, in their last years.

Thank you for your support!
