I am hiking for Melabev and to honor a woman I knew in Atlanta, Leslie Lowenstein. who made aliyah with her husband, Chuck. This beautiful and vibrant person, who used to run and is only a few years older than me, has Alzheimer’s. Leslie goes to Melabev in Jerusalem and benefits from their programs, which I know, from firsthand experience volunteering there, are intelligent, dignified, insightful and fun! Her husband tells me that she looks forward to Diane Ram’s hugs every week. I look forward to hiking with Diane and seeing Leslie while I am in Israel.
Her husband emphasized that she will not recognize me, however, that is okay because I remember HER.
I am turning to my many friends and family to support me in this very worthy cause. All donations are tax-deductible. You can sponsor me by going to hike4alz.melabev.org and clicking on my name. I would love to have you join me, hiking in beautiful Eretz Israel while supporting those who would love to hike, such as Leslie, but are no longer able.
I am especially excited to hike with the new hip I received April 3rd. I named her “Ruthie”!
I deeply appreciate whatever financial support you can provide in our efforts to help Melabev.
With Love and Gratitude
