GIVE SOME SWEAT FOR THE IDF!
Team Connections is the endurance sports training and fundraising program, benefiting the soldiers of the IDF, through the Connections Israel organization. The program is a fantastic way to get in shape, train and join a great group of people who care about the future of Israel. Team Connections provides training for either 4.2 or 10 kilometer races and the half (21K) or full marathon (42K). Team Connections members commit to raise money for special projects at the IDF bases. These projects are based upon making the lives of our chayalim (soldiers) a bit easier when they're on base (all of the units we are working with are combat units).
On March 1st 2013, Team Connections will participate in the Jerusalem Marathon and the proceeds will go to these projects for IDF soldiers , as a practical means of showing our support.
Team Connections members who help raise awareness and funds

Personalized fitness training by certified coaches from "Hasolelim" Jerusalem long distance Running Club.
A personalized Web site for online fundraising.
Support from your Team Connections teammates.
GREAT race t-shirt!
