A team of 16 Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School students recently visited Israel to participate in the Jerusalem 10K and Half Marathon. The team ran for Shalva, the Association for Mentally and Physically Challenged Children in Israel.
The team surpassed its fundraising goal, and has successfully raised over $40,000 to-date. While in Israel, the students spent their free time visiting Shalva, touring sites, and enjoying a beautiful and meaningful Shabbat in Jerusalem. The RKYHS students worked very hard to prepare for the marathon and gathered together frequently to discuss training tips, running schedules and to provide team support.
