Team Yachad, a program of Yachad, the National Jewish Council for Disabilities (NJCD) is dedicated to addressing the needs of all individuals with disabilities and including them in the Jewish community. Team Yachad aims to raise funds through fitness challenges such as Half-Marathons, Marathons, bicycle races or any other event. All monies raised will go directly to help those with disabilities attend many of our famous Shabbatonim (weekend retreats), summer programs and an array of other inclusive activities.
That is the beauty of Team Yachad Anytime-Anywhere. You can participate in any event taking place anywhere at any time. When you are planning to participate in an event, why not raise money for a great cause at the same time. Let us know what event you are participating in, and we will help you raise money while accomplishing a great personal goal.
Once you reach your fundraising goal Team Yachad will provide:
Simply register! Your $18 registration fee is a tax deductible, non-refundable donation to Yachad. The registration fee will be applied towards your minimum fundraising commitment.
Raising money can be quite fun and motivating when you are soliciting and collect pledges and donations from friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, and others. Experience has shown that it is not only possible, but quite enjoyable as you work to reach this goal. Yachad is a worthwhile organization and our runners are enthusiastic about its mission. You will be surprised how friends, family, and co-workers will respond to your effort to run/walk a half or full marathon to help this wonderful cause. Remember, you are not asking people to make donations… you are asking them to sponsor you and support you in your efforts on behalf of Yachad! Team Yachad will be with you every step of the way to help you reach your goal! Should you have any additional concerns or questions related to the fundraising aspect, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, of course! Each team member should register as a runner individually, and then please contact Team Yachad at email@example.com about creating a joint team account.
Oy vey! For some reason, it seems that emails coming from firstname.lastname@example.org are actually going into people’s SPAM folders. We have filed a complaint with the “email people” but, unfortunately, we don’t anticipate hearing back from them soon. Check your SPAM folder for the email.
Online contributions can be made by credit card on the runner’s personalized page found on our website www.teamyachad.com.Checks should be pledged online through the runners personalized page and then can be mailed to Team Yachad, 11 Broadway, 13th floor, New York, New York 10004. Please make sure that sponsors write your name and their email address on the check so that we can ensure that you are given credit for the donation. Team Yachad will send tax exempt receipts to every sponsor.
While we are sure you will be sorely missed the funds that you have raised will be contributed as a general donation to Team Yachad. if you would like to sign up to run a different event within 12 months of the missed event, Team Yachad will carry the previously raised money over towards your new event!
