Run With Us!! Team Darkaynu in Upcoming Jerusalem Marathon

Team Darkaynu is once again looking forward to walking, running, and jogging in our Holy City with tens of thousands of others. On March 21st, the staff, special students, and friends of the Darkaynu Programs will don orange and join in the fourth annual Jerusalem Marathon!

As we did the last two years, our team runs to spread awareness of our programs, to bring honor to our students who will be running alongside their mainstream peers, and to raise much-needed funds for our scholarship fund.

Last year’s team was able to collectively raise over $40,000! This year, we’d like to raise that number to $56,000; two Darkaynu Tuitions – WITH YOUR HELP.

Sponsor one of the runners – or run yourself – and help raise funds for the ONLY year-in-Israel program for young adults with special needs. For more information: TEAMDARKAYNU@gmail.com or call us at +972-52-611-8550

Darkaynu is unique because it “sidestreams” students in a specialized, highly-supervised program featuring an exceptional counselor/student ratio, operating within the larger environments of other overseas programs for mainstreamed youth. This empowers Darkaynu students to participate in activities in which they can excel and build confidence, i.e. dorm experiences, meals, weekends, outings, celebrations or leisure time, but separates them for those in which they need individualized attention, such as in the classroom, or in workshops tailored specifically for them on subjects ranging from life skills, independent living or interpersonal relations. Darkaynu also provides each student with vocational training, work and volunteer placements, a personal “adoptive family,” and an abundance of social opportunities which they couldn’t possibly experience on their own.
