The Hike for Hope – March 22-23, 2023
A socially-responsible hiking adventure in Israel
The children of Tsad Kadima invite you to participate in the 19th annual “Hike for Hope”. The hike consists of two days of unforgettable hiking fun in the beautiful Ramat HaNegev region, with its combination of desert scenery, oases with waterfalls and pools, and wine horticulture. While participating in a fun hike you will be simultaneously raising donations to help children with disabilities reach their potential.
The hike is run by volunteers and by Tsad Kadima staff with two goals in mind: to raise donations that support Tsad Kadima’s educational/rehabilitation activities throughout Israel, and to raise public awareness for children and adults with physical disabilities.
We will gather in the south on Tuesday evening, March 21, 2023 and hike on Wednesday and Thursday. It is possible to participate in just one day of hiking.
The hiking routes are in the Sede Boker area. Accommodations will be at “Khan Merhav Am” which offers a range of accommodation options. Hikers interested in staying in a private room (at added cost) should check the appropriate box on the registration form and reserve their own room ASAP.
We will serve a hot dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings with a variety of food options. On Thursday late afternoon, we will end the Hike for Hope with our traditional barbecue and a closing ceremony
We will serve breakfast on Wednesday and Thursday morning. There will also be a buffet of food options so that each hiker can prepare their own lunch to eat on the trail, including bread for sandwiches, various spreads, eggs, cheese, fruit, granola bars, and all kinds of goodies. All food will be kosher
Please see the Price table for the amount of the registration fee, for the fundraising quota that each hiker must reach before participating in the hike and for various discounts. We hope that as many hikers as possible will exceed the minimum requirement.
All of the money raised by the Hike for Hope will used to develop programs at Tsad Kadima’s rehabilitation day center in Jerusalem, where young adults are given tools and skills to participate as fully as possible in the society around them. The day center is attended every day by dozens of young adults with cerebral palsy or other complex handicaps. Activities include art, computers, para-medical treatments, and much more. The goal is to be part of “regular” society and to be as independent as possible.
