The highlight of Mitzvah planning for 2015 was Tzvika’s 5 km run held at Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach which was planned for Tzvika’s Mitzvah project.  Our first steps were to select a venue that had a 5km trail and obtain the necessary permits to hold the event.   We contracted with Accuchip Race timing services who provided state of the art timing services for our runners.We designed a custom logo  for the event which was printed on t shirts , signage and water bottles. Linzi Events provided all mile markers and water stations as well as event coordination and management.  All our runners were treated to a well deserved  Icee after a long run on a  very hot summer day.

Dear Family and Friends,

B’Ezras Hashem this summer I will become a Bar Mitzvah. My parents want this to be a meaningful experience for me so they asked me to create a fundraiser in honor of my Bar Mitzvah. Running has always been something that I love to do, I decided to create a 5k run to raise money for colon cancer research. I’m named after my grandfather, “Saba Tzvika,” who died from colon cancer before I was able to meet him. I would love to help others avoid such a loss. It would be an honor if you could help me with this, my first mitzvah project.

To qualify for the run I ask that you raise a minimum (there is no maximum!) of $36 for adults and $18 for kids in sponsorships. Of course donations are welcome from those who cannot make the run. In Pirkei Avot, it says that one should run to do a mitzvah because one mitzvah leads to another mitzvah. I hope that the starting line of this race is just the beginning of many mitzvahs for all of us.

Sincerely,

Tzvika
