Once again British Emunah is fortunate to have seven super-heroes, taking on the massive challenge of running the Virgin Money London Marathon. Our runners are:
The marathon takes place this year on Sunday 23rd April 2017 and our dedicated runners are currently in training for the task ahead. They are also fundraising for a very special project – their sponsorship is supporting a vital project in the Emunah Afula Children’s Home in Northern Israel, where ‘at risk children, some orphaned, some abused, all neglected, are given the help they need to literally save their lives.
The project is the urgent renovation of the teenage boys’ dormitory. The building is more than 60 years old and has been home to hundreds of boys. The conditions the children are now living in are primitive and in urgent need of upgrading to meet modern standards. Just like our children, these children need a safe, nurturing, secure home environment with their own personal space, a bed, a desk to study at and a cupboard for their belongings, and bathroom facilities which provides appropriate privacy. We have managed to obtain a matched funding pledge so every pound raised will be doubled.
