Shalva Mt. Kilimanjaro Challenge
BJC Frank Solomon will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzana next October to raise money for Jerusalem’s Shalva Children’s Center, which helps children with disabilities. Shalva provides rehab programs for children with physical and mental disabilities and empowers these them and their families to live in a socially inclusive environment. He has to amass $10,000 for this challenge, and throw in a few thousand on his on, in addition to trekking 19,000 feet up the world’s highest free-standing mountain (hint: Mt. Everest is the highest in the world but I isn’t free-standing).
Frank thinks his climb has a purpose–climb mountains, but not much meaning. Your sponsorship will add meaning to his effort, a perfect way to combine tikkun olam with sedekah.
