Together with his running guide, Major Shaked of the IAF, civil rights attorney Richard ran for the soldiers and to change perceptions of the disabled. (Click here to see video of Richard's run)
Through the rain, hail and cold, Richard and the Thank Israeli Soldiers team all reached the finish line in their respective races: the full and half marathons, and the 10k. Thank Israeli Soldiers thanks our amazing team members, ages 12 -64, for the great run and for raising money to send Passover food packages to needy soldiers and their families. Special thanks to Jenna Romano for organizing the team.
