Welcome to Mike Aidane's Fundraising Page!
In Memoriam of Elisabeth Aidane z''l
In less than 6 weeks, we will be riding 250 km in the desert for WHEELS of LOVE in Israel in support of ALYN Hospital for the 2nd year with our team "Ze French Californian Bikerz"
Last year was very emotional for all of us. Seeing the energy and life in the eyes of the children of Alyn made us all cry. As you probably remember, last year, I had dedicated my fundraising to my mother who had lost her fight against cancer just months before. My brother Ariel joined in for most of the ride and my Dad also made the trip and became known as the French Doctor, taking good care of the team after all the efforts.
So we are turning this fundraiser into a yearly tradition and a great way to honor my mother memory. She celebrated life, dedicated her life to working with children and establishing strong links between Israeli and French researchers in her field of pedo-psychiatry and would also have been very touched by seeing the work of the staff of Alyn and how they are able to change the life perspective of the children of Alyn.
As a participant in the ride, I have set an ambitious 5000$ goal for my fundraising and this is where I need your help. I am writing to ask for your support with a donation toward my ride. Any amount would be wonderful to receive. I hope you will consider giving a gift of $60, $108, $180 or more – it is really your support that matters to me.
WHEEL OF LOVE is an amazing 5 day charity bike ride in Israel held every fall to benefit the physically disabled children of ALYN. I am going to ride my bike for 5 days, 250 km in the Judean Desert and I don’t know how many feet of climbs. Too many I think. Every turn of the wheel will be to benefit the physically disabled children of ALYN Hospital in Jerusalem.
If you can find the time to join us, we are a growing team of now 6 riders coming all the way from California.
ALYN Hospital is the gold standard IN THE WORLD for pediatric rehabilitation. You can learn all about ALYN here: www.alynus.org
Children come to ALYN from all over Israel seeking their very special brand of love-compassion-hope-expertise. It’s a failsafe recipe for success. ALYN knows exactly how to help every single child reach his or her highest level of mobility – no matter how dire the circumstances. All they lack is the money to insure this life changing care.
WHEELS OF LOVE is the Hospital’s largest annual fundraiser. I’ve been told I am going to meet incredible people, make lifelong friends and see places in Israel one can only see from the seat of the bike. But I’ve been told it is the children’s smiles and their parents’ thanks of gratitude that makes this experience so exceptional. I am paying my own airfare, my own hotels and a registration fee.
All gifts are 100% tax-deductible and the American Friends of ALYN sends 100% of every gift to the Hospital! If you are a French taxpayer, contact me before donating, we can organize CERFA via "Les Amis d'Alyn".
I am very excited to be going to Israel to do a mitzvah. YOU can help me double the mitzvah by being as generous as you possibly can be to these kids. It’s so easy to become a hero to them – just click on Donate here. Thank you for helping me help these very deserving children.
The ride is October 29th to November 2nd – look for pictures that I will send from Israel!
