THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

I decided to run the Miami half marathon 2016 and be a part of a team that is running for something bigger and better than just running for myself. I stumbled across this amazing organization that hits very close to my heart and am now a member of Team Blue Card! The Blue Card (www.bluecardfund.org) is the only charity in the U.S. that exclusively aids destitute Holocaust survivors. These are the survivors who have fallen upon hard times, because of ill health, often in consequence of abuse and deprivations in their youth, death of spouses and family members, financial setbacks and more. As their ranks thin each year, others fall into destitution and the need does not diminish. The Blue Card works to make their last years as dignified as possible, by adding the kind of simple comforts that are not obtainable through the usual channels. Both my grandparents Edith and William were Holocaust survivors and while they were alive, they always made it a point to teach me the importance of my Jewish heritage. As I run for this beautiful cause, I will be thinking of my grandparents and the survivors I am helping! Please join me in helping this amazing charity by donating to my fundraiser.

Much love and gratitude to all, Monica
