Tsad Kadima’s 20th Anniversary Hike for Hope
This year’s HIKE FOR HOPE will comprise DAY HIKES IN THE NORTHERN DEAD SEA AREA on Wed. April 10 and THE JUDEAN FOOTHILLS on Thurs. April 11 (with an optional hike on Fri. April 12).
A socially-responsible hiking adventure in Israel
While participating in a fun hike you will be simultaneously raising donations – this year funds raised will be used in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of our Adult Day Center in Jerusalem (see details below).
Some 20 years ago, a group of hikers banded together to explore the most beautiful parts of Israel and at the same time raise essential funds for Tsad Kadima.
This year’s 20th Anniversary Hike for Hope will take place on April 10-11, 2024 and includes 5 different hiking options that are tailored to different levels of ability and experience: the traditional challenge and regular routes, a new “leisure” route for adults wanting a shorter and easier going pace, as well as two kid friendly hikes, one for younger, and one for older (10+) kids.
Each year the “Hike for Hope” covers different trails, and we usually alternate between hiking in the north and the south of the country. The routes we have chosen this year – in the NORTHERN DEAD SEA AREA on Wed. April 10 and THE JUDEAN FOOTHILLS on Thurs. April 11 (with an optional hike on Fri. April 12) – are full of fun for kids of all ages – caves to explore, splashing in springs, flowers to identify, history to discover. Or just enjoy the walk in our most beautiful country.
Coming on the Hike for Hope THIS year has a special meaning beyond the fun. We are saying – WE ARE HERE, WE WILL CONTINUE TO WALK THIS LAND, AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO ENSURE THAT TSAD KADIMA ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES GET THE SUPPORT THEY NEED!
In addition to the hikes:
Tuesday evening, April 9 – we will meet on Zoom to launch the Hike and review the routes.
Wednesday, April 10, after the hike – we will meet for dinner.
Thursday, April 11, after the hike – we will hold our special 20th Anniversary Reunion event for all hikers past and present.
We are finalizing the details regarding the hike routes, dinner locations and the reunion event and will share them as soon as possible. Transportation from the Jerusalem area to the hikes will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday.
Registration Fees and Fundraising Information:
Cost per participant regardless of age: 400 NIS; One day only 300 NIS.
Each hiker must commit to raising the following minimum amount of donations for Tsad Kadima: Adult: NIS 2,500; Couple: NIS 4,000; For each child/grandchild, add NIS 1,000 to the above, up to a maximum of NIS 2,000.
Ideally, each hiker must reach their fundraising goal participating in the hike. But don’t worry, the Tsad Kadima staff help you out, and ever year, most our hikers exceed the minimum and raise crucial funds for children and young adults with complex physical disabilities.
The money raised by the 20th Anniversary Hike for Hope this year will be used in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Tsad Kadima’s Adult Day Center in Jerusalem to directly benefit young adults with complex physical disabilities. Tsad Kadima provides essential educational and rehabilitative programs for these young adults, and special activities including an accessible music program, Bira Kadima – Israel’s first micro-brewery run by people with disabilities, an academic program with a nearby teacher’s college and more.
The Israeli government provides some 75% of Tsad Kadima’s annual budget. Thanks to your donations – especially those from the Hike for Hope – we are able to provide the full level and scope of services for these children and their families.
