Dear family,

As many of you know one of our goals with our brothers is for them to experience that no matter how severe the injury, they are unstoppable and can overcome anything.

Last week on our amazing Seattle delegation each of our brothers went parasailing high above the mountains.   If you look carefully in the photo below you will see one of us flying the Flag of Israel!

Another example of this is our new racing project.

One special thing about this project is that in most cases the cars require the driver to use 4 limbs, but we were able to find a vehicle that can be operated using hands only, making it accessible to drivers with all types of injuries. One of our brothers who participates in this project is S. He served as a sniper in one of the IDF elite units, and was injured in Gaza in 2004, when a sniper shot him in his back and he remained paralyzed. He is an amazing person who creates a very special atmosphere around him.

It’s hard to put into words how inspiring this is for all of us.  A message to our dreams: we are coming back for you!

Shabbat Shalom from Israel,
