It has been an amazing walk.

WE walked the land for those who can't.
YOU helped us raise $36,000 from people just like you from all over the world.
BUT – The real walk and mission continues. The mission to find a cure to ALS.

Please keep on donating. Every single $ will go towards research of this terrible disease.

It is our duty to do all we can to save the next ALS patients.


Every day we get closer to finding a cure to A.L.S. Every investment in research gets us closer to finding a solution.

Every donation, every km sponsored, will buy more lab time, more research staff, more hope.
 
 
 

We are walking the Land - For those who can't

 
 

The day we got the message that my mother, Lee, suffered from Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS), we knew that from that moment on we were facing a painful and despairing death: Her neurological disorder stole her ability to hug, to speak, to eat, to walk, to move her limbs and even to breathe. With gigantic effort she murmured to us "I love you."But we couldn't help her.

Allan & Tzipi - Israel Trail

My mother, Lee Rabinowitz, died of Lou Gehrig's (ALS) in the summer of 2008.

In her memory , my wife Tzippi, my son Ezra and I, will start backpacking the entire Israel Trail from north to south, some 1,000 winding kilometers (625 miles). Our goal is to raise both ALS awareness and funds for ALS research in Israel. This is the best way we know to express thanks for our miraculous ability to walk.

We will be very encouraged in our journey if you join us: You can do that by viewing, in this website, our blogs, photos and video clips of Biblical sites as we progress.

And equally important, you can join our effort by "sponsoring" one or more  kilometers, at $36/km, so that ALS research can advance as we advance. We deeply appreciate your participation in this effort.

Together we can do it. Let's walk the land for those who can't. Can I count on your support?  

 

Many Thanks and Blessings, Allan Rabinowitz

 
     
 
 

And the walk goes on...

 
   
     
 
 

How far did the message get thus far

5 Facts about A.L.S

 
 
  • Within 3-5 years from the time of diagnosis most patients die, fully paralyzed but fully lucid.
  • There are no drugs or treatments that efficiently stop or slow the disease.
  • A.L.S can strike anyone- with no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries.
  • In Israel, every three days a person dies from A.L.S.
  • A.L.S is the most severe of degenerative diseases and scientists still don't know much about it's cause.

The Israel National Trail (INT)

 
 

The Israel National Trail (INT) is a footpath that winds its way from the Syrian/Lebanese border in the north to the Red Sea in the south. The trail crosses the Negev Desert, past three seas, alongside ancient ruins and through modern cities.
