Please support the American Friends of Beit Issie Shapiro’s 2017 TCS New York City Marathon participants as they run 26.2 miles to:

  • Fund innovative, hi-tech solutions that transform the lives of children with disabilities at Beit Issie Shapiro in Israel.The kids at Beit Issie aren't all able to take steps yet but, with your support, we can help assure they all MAKE STRIDES. 
  • Change the lives of people with disabilities around the world. Beit Issie is passionately committed to sharing their expertise globally.

Through tireless training and dedication, each runner has committed to raising at least $3,600 to help support AFOBIS’s work.

We hope you’ll come cheer us on November 5th. While the kids of Beit Issie may not be able to make it to NYC for the big day,  they will be with the runners in spirit, holding their hands and cheering them on every step of the way.

Please give generously and help Beit Issie Shapiro build a better world.
