How your contribution helps:
Your donation provides equipment and staffing to support the Sports Therapy Program at Beit Issie Shapiro’s Special Education School. The program serves children ages 6-12 with severe developmental and physical disabilities, including Cerebral Palsy, Autism and more.

Sports therapy is also a great outlet for just having fun!
