2021 Year-End Campaign
The Israel Sport Center for the Disabled Transforms Lives: By harnessing the incredible power of sport for physical and psychological rehabilitation, ISCD transforms lives. A home-away-from-home for many, the Center is staffed by people who themselves have physical disabilities. ISCD runs recreational and competitive programs in 18 different sports, including elite Paralympic training. The Center’s professional staff are committed to helping our athletes reach and exceed their goals, none of which would be possible without the support of people like you.
While many children and adults come to the Center for rehabilitation, some find a love for sport and competition that they never knew they had. Center athlete Tal is one such athlete.
Tal is a fighter. When he came to the Center at the age of 5, his rehabilitation focused on swimming and improving his overall motor functions. But Tal had other plans. He dreamed of racing down the basketball court, shooting baskets, and becoming a wheelchair basketball star. Even when he barely had the strength to push a wheelchair down the court, he never gave up. Because of his incredible strength and perseverance, Tal now plays on the Center’s Young Wheelchair Basketball Team through the OlympiKids program. His determination to achieve his dreams inspires everyone who meets him.
What Your Gift Will Accomplish: Each year the Center supplies its athletes with more than 200 elite sports wheelchairs. For children like Tal, a new wheelchair is more than just a set of wheels – it’s a symbol of hope. It’s a chance to learn a new skill; to gain strength; to become a champion. Your gift for the 2021 Year-End Campaign gives athletes of all ages and backgrounds the chance to reach for their dreams.
The American Friends of ISCD is committed to providing ongoing financial support to the Center, empowering children and youth with physical disabilities from all backgrounds to participate in physical and psychological rehabilitation through sports in order to attain the goal of leading productive and successful lives in Israeli society.
To guarantee long term financial security ensuring the reach of ISCD to every Israeli child in need.
