Yitzhak Zahavy is not the only one participating in the Nautica NYC Triathlon for a charitable purpose. Sharsheret, a national organization supporting young Jewish women and their families facing breast cancer, is fielding its own team.
A number of local New Jersey residents are part of Team Sharsheret, including Jonathan Blinken, Judah Greenblatt, and Talya Spitzer, all of Englewood; Dr. Mark Levie of Teaneck; and Rebecca Schwartz of Bergenfield. To date, Team Sharsheret athletes have raised more than $50,000 for Sharsheret’s programs.
Team Sharsheret is also recruiting runners to participate in the ING New York City Marathon on Nov. 6. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
