We are thrilled to be celebrating our team of runners in this year’s London Marathon. Yesterday, on Sunday 3rd October 2021, Bruno Sussat, Joshua Minett and Oliver Miller took on a once-in-a-lifetime challenge in support of our mission.
We are truly grateful that these runners pledged their support in our fight against extreme poverty. Bruno shares his reasons for joining in our cause:
“This year has taught us how crucial it is to have sound mechanisms in place to support our communities. We’ve been extremely lucky to live in a country that is wealthy enough provide a world-leading health service and vaccinate us against future risk, a country that has enough global influence to ensure that our supply chain meets our needs, and an economy that is flexible and resilient enough to continue to provide opportunities for education and work. The communities that Tzedek support do not have those same support provisions in place.”
Always, but particularly in light of the current global crisis, we so appreciate that our runners recognise how critical our work is for those who need it the most. The time and energy they have devoted to our mission means the world to us and our global community. Together, they have raised over £4000 so far, which will truly make a difference in some of the poorest regions of the world.
Oliver tells us:
“Honestly, I’m just so grateful, not only for the opportunity to run a once in a lifetime event, but also to support such a great cause. It’s not every day you get to help a charity that has such a huge impact on so many people’s lives and future generations.”
The feeling of gratitude is mutual. Our community of supporters is crucial – our lifechanging work would not be possible without you.
Our team had a great time cheering Bruno, Joshua and Oliver on and seeing them cross the finish line this weekend. Thank you so much to these fantastic runners and all of their supporters for joining us, and congratulations on this incredible achievement!
