Aharon Karov barely survived being wounded in Gaza. This weekend, the inspirational Israeli soldier finished the New York Marathon.
Organizers of this year’s ING New York City Marathon on November 6 are hoping that runners will raise $1 million per mile. That’s a total of $26,200,000 for charity. Among the official charity teams this year will be 70 runners raising money for The Blue Card, a non-profit organization that supports the everyday financial needs of 2,000 destitute Holocaust survivors in the United States.
