I just wanted to thank all of you who kindly donated to Alyn for my wife's Tel-aviv to Jerusalem bike ride.
she brought in $1915.04 for Alyn, and the charity raised well over $2 million.
One wonderful story that aliza told me was that there were over 600 riders at the starting line just waiting to speed away. And then someone got on the PA system and said tefillat Haderech and the entire throng responded with a resounding "Amen!". This was not a religious group by any means, and yet this is Israel, and before they set out, Tefillat Haderech was said. A beautiful kiddush Hashem.
To everybody who supported Aliza's ride, thank you and tizku lemitzvot.
(Next year I think she is going for the 5-day ride. she has caught the bicycle bug! )
