Our annual bike-a-thon to benefit Beit Issie Shapiro Institue in Israel will be held on Thursday, April 26, 2012. Children at Beit Issie Shapiro are special needs, severely
challenged children and our challenge is to raise $10,000 to help provide services and special equipment to ease the burden on their families. Let us all look at our own children and appreciate the wonder of parenting a healthy typical child and sponsor a Beit Issie Shapiro child today. This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to learn about Tzedakah and the importance of helping others.
• Ask family and friends to sponsor your child.
• All money goes to Beit Issie Shapiro.
• We want 100% participation at any level
• Each class with 100% participation will get an ice cream party
• Tzedakah boxes will go home with your child for any extra change you may have.
There will be an opportunity for your child to put their change into a wishing well. All change goes directly to Beit Issie Shapiro. These tzedakah boxes are in addition to the donations your child receives from friends and family.
