Team OurPlace outside of Cafe Rimon during the team’s pre-run pasta party last Thursday evening.
The team consisted of 40 dedicated runners participating in Friday’s Jerusalem marathon to help raise desperately-needed funds for OurPlace. 15 team members flew in for the weekend just for the race, while the other 25 members consisted of gap-year Yeshiva & Seminary students. This was OurPlace’s first year participating in the Jerusalem Marathon, raising over $70,000 with the help of its Team Sponsor, Goldmont Realty. OurPlace, based in Brooklyn, NY, provides critical life-saving services to over 1000 at-risk and in-pain Jewish youth each year.
