Israel Ride's Team Illinois (Mark Frisch, David Ness-Cohn, and Steve Storey) will be embarking on a unique bike ride through an amazing landsacpe for two great causes and we hope you will be able to support our efforts. These two innovative organizations are 1) the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies which brings together Arab and Jewish Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians in the Negev to study how to solve environmental issues in the Middle East and 2) Hazon which raises awareness about environmental issues in the U.S.
The Israel Ride takes place from November 5th through 12th, 2019, starting in Jerusalem and ending at the Red Sea in Eilat. We will be biking approximately 275 miles. Our Team Illinois has committed to raise a minimum of $12,000 as a team and we hope you can help us reach our goal by contributing any amount you are comfortable with -big or small- using the donate button on this page.
If you prefer writing a check, please make the check out to:
Friends of the Arava Institute and mail it to Israel Ride Team Illinois, c/o Mark Frisch, 1941 Birchwood Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091 or give the check to any member of the team.
Let us know if you would like more information or if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!
