Roee Joelson's Mitzvah Project
When I cross the finish line, I’m helping a child with disabilities.
Hi, my name is Roee Joelson. I am in 7th grade and preparing for my Bar Mitzvah. As I was searching for my organization for my mitzvah project I came across the Israel Sport Center for the Disabled and immediately fell in love with it. I watched videos about kids with disabilities getting to do what they were once told was not possible and it inspired me. I am very athletic. I play soccer and I play football with my brother. I also enjoy running. These sports have had a great impact on my life and have shaped me into who I am today. This organization is helping kids with disabilities get the privileges I enjoy every day. So for my mitzvah project, I am hosting a run called Roee’s Shvitzvah Jog, and I am raising money for this amazing organization so more and more children with disabilities can have the athletic experiences that I love.
The money I raise will go straight to the Israel Sport Center for the Disabled to help children with disabilities overcome huge obstacles they have in life. Please remember that when I cross the finish line, I’m helping a child with disabilities cross it too.
