Thank you for visiting my Israel Ride page!!
I am thrilled to share that on November 5th, I will be joining my dad for the 2019 Israel (Bike) Ride from Jerusalem to Eilat (uh oh...better get offline & start training...).
I have been preparing on the bike paths of Denmark over the past 6 months, and I will be joining my dad to bike 30-50 miles per day for 5 days through the desert of Southern Israel. Over the course of the ride, we will be reaching 300 km / 185 miles total alongside 150-200 other riders.
We are officially named Team Arad, in honor of the lovely Israeli town of Arad where my parents first met in 1984 - where our family's deep connection with Israel all began.18 years later, they returned to Israel for the first time together with their 3 children to celebrate my bat-mitzvah with a meaningful trip to where our family and their love for each other first began.
This ride will be a wonderful way to connect more deeply with Israel, enjoy some quality father-daughter bonding time, and see paths of the country that we would not typically have the opportunity to see from our car windows, especially not at such a slow, measured pace.
In order to support this second home of mine, and some worthy charitable organizations through this event, I have committed to raising at least $3,000 for the Arava Institute and Hazon, two organizations striving to improve sustainability and the environment in Israel, before my wheels start spinning south in just a few short weeks.
I would greatly appreciate any donation you could afford to make, on behalf of me, my parents, and these very deserving charities. There is no contribution too small, as every dollar I can support in raising will have a meaningful impact.
Thank you, always, for your support!
With all my gratitude & love,
