“I was always raised to be very involved in the Montreal Jewish Community. I went to Jewish school, attended youth groups and always stayed connected through McGill Hillel and such. When I started my career, the need to be constantly connected grew stronger. I wanted to give back to the community that has done so much for me.
In parallel, running became a passion over the years, after being a very inactive person! Both are now things that I cannot envision my life without. This year, YAD came up with an amazing initiative that allowed us to raise over $18,000 for those in need in our community by participating in the Montreal Marathon series. It has been such a fulfilling experience to raise money and run regularly with a group of highly motivated and driven young professionals of our vibrant community. After having improved my time at the half marathon and exceeding my fundraising goal, I’m still on a high!”
