Welcome to Elan Zivotofsky's Fundraising Page!
I am proud to be a part of the annual charity ride to benefit the kids of ALYN Hospital. These children are the very deserving beneficiaries of your generosity. ALYN is a world leader in pediatric rehabilitation and they truly make both magic and miracles. The Hospital receives no automatic government funding and is dependent on donations to meet an ever rising shortfall in funding.
This will be my 3rd year doing the ride, and in addition to the main goal of the ride – raising money for the children of Alyn—this year will also represent a significant personal challenge for me as well. As many of you know, almost 1-year ago, I was involved in a serious car accident and sustained major injuries to my foot and knee (and as a result had to miss last year’s ride). I underwent 2 operations and spent months of healing and physical therapy. I was able to get back on my bike about 5 months ago, and have been working hard to improve my endurance and to ride without pain. I had set a personal goal to participate in the Alyn Ride again this year, and after a lot of hard work, and a somewhat delayed decision, I have now decided to do it! Having gone through a physical trauma myself this year, I realize how much most of us take for granted very basic physical capabilities ---such as walking, and how fortunate I am that my injuries were mostly temporary. It also gave me a much deeper appreciation for the incredible work Alyn does for many, who unfortunately, have much more severe physical limitations.
Please help me so that we can both do a mitzvah to help transform disabilities into abilities.
