Aleh Foundation USA Announces their First 5K Race

On April 6, 2014 many friends and supporters of the Aleh Foundation will gather at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for a 5K/Run/Walk – A- Thon.  This exciting experience has built unusual momentum by friends of the Aleh Foundation throughout the United States. Bib pick-up commences at 7:30 am and the event kicks off at 9:00 am with a warm-up and stretch with the Brooklynettes. Runners, walkers and the differently-abled are encouraged to support Aleh Foundation USA by selecting one of the registration options below and joining us.

Elected and Government officials have expressed interest and some of them have already signed up to be part of this mission. The purpose of this Marathon is to raise awareness that countless of children are not being served and addressed in some of their deficiencies early enough. The Aleh Foundation was founded in 1984 in the USA and has accomplished to dissolve a major part of the stigma of dealing with handicapped children and the severely disabled population. While many organizations and lots of parents have taken considerable steps to address and treat these special children, the Aleh Foundation feels that there is still a major unmet need for many more children and young adults in dire need of service.

Aleh Foundation does magnificent work to improve the lives of Israel’s most needy and was instrumental that Aleh has become one of the world’s leading institutions for the care and treatment of severely developmentally disabled children. Who provide treatment, medical care and special education classes and living quarters to more than 700 children ranging from infants to adults, transforming their life to be accessible to therapies such as, physical therapy, art and music. The core of this success is the warm, personal relationship developed between their caregivers and the children. After all, Aleh’s loving, professional staff plays many roles in the lives of the disabled children – family, teachers and friends. This year, the Aleh Foundation will celebrate 30 years of helping special children and the needy. In addition, the Center provides a respite for the parents and siblings of developmentally delayed children by providing a full program of after school and weekend activities. The outdoor activities are challenging, fostering physical strength, balance and agility. This goes a long way toward boosting the children’s confidence and self-esteem. Aleh helps the children’s families by helping out with shopping, preparing meals and running household errands. 

The Aleh Foundation was formed in 1984 by a group of women to help cope with the staggering need for disabled children in Israel. In 1989 a delegation from Israel reached out to Rabbi Shlomo Braun to establish a US fundraising office and expand the Aleh Foundation’s public relations and fundraising activities. The Aleh Foundation opened its first office in the United States in 1989, and developed a network of more than 30,000 friends throughout the USA who became staunch supporters of our activities. With the Aleh Foundation’s help, the rehabilitation centers in Israel grew from a hospice program of 23 children to become the nation’s largest provider of educational rehabilitative services to severely developmentally disabled children operating in four different cities in Israel. The Foundation is located at 5317 13th Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11219. Please call our hotline at 800-317-ALEH or visit the Aleh Foundation website at www.alehfoundationusa.org .
