Eighteen teens with physical challenges are taken through a life-changing spartan race.
I took the money I won on Million Dollar Mile and started a non-profit called Jewish Inspiration Foundation. I felt that it was time to make a difference and with Jifoundation.org, we created the Climb for Life Program.
Climb for Life takes kids and teens with physical challenges through a real spartan race. We pair teens facing challenges such as blindness, cancer, diabetes, being wheelchair bound with teammates who work together to overcome 20 obstacles over three miles. Before they tackle this challenge, they go through a two-month health and wellness program based on a psychological curriculum to better everyone's lives.
The teammates signed up because they're motivated to help these teens; by the finish line, everyone realized it was the teens who helped the teammates. If we can face challenges with the right mindset and together as a team... anything is possible.
