Welcome to Team Shtark! We are putting the band back together!
We love Israel, we love to ride and we love to raise money for good causes.
Later this month, Alan, Dima, Brett and I are participating in a 300 mile bike ride from Jerusalem through the Negev Desert to the southern Israel city of Eilat.
The two organizations we’re raising money for are the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and Hazon, both promoting environmental protection in the U.S. and Israel.
To learn more about the work of the Arava Institute and Hazon check out their respective web sites at http://www.arava.org and www.hazon.org.
Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated. We'll be cycling our asses off and sending updates from the road!
