Hello, My name is Leah Kleinstein, and I am choosing to do my mitzvah project to help those with disabilities play sports. I am 11 years old, and I am on a swim team called the Bluestreaks. I have been swimming since I was 4 years old.
I was at a fundraising dinner when I first learned about ISCD, and I felt that this was perfect for my mitzvah project. I felt bad for the kids and adults that couldn’t participate in the sports they would like to play. I think that people should be able to play sports even if they are disabled.
I was very lucky to visit the ISCD on my trip to Israel last summer. I had a private tour of the facility from one of the executives, named Boaz. I got to see the basketball team practicing for an upcoming tournament, as well as another girl playing tennis in a wheelchair. Being able to raise money for ISCD will help the center to have more wheelchairs for the kids and adults. Even if I raise the money for one wheelchair ($2,500), it can help many kids. So please help me support these kids to be able to play sports. Any donation is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Leah
