JOIN TEAM ZEDEK AND RUN in the Scotiabank Toronto Marathon Group Charity Challenge on Sunday October 18th, 2015 You can participate as an individual or as a team and run in either the 5K, Half-Marathon or Full-Marathon to support the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Serving the needs of the residents of Jerusalem and Israel, Shaare Zedek is the city's only major, centrally located hospital, committed to the provision of world class medical care through a highly compassionate and personalized approach. Shaare Zedek has responded to the needs of Jerusalem's uniquely diverse population from its very first day of operation, treating patients of every race, religion and nationality.
Today, the 1000-bed facility admits more than 60,000 in-patients a year in its thirty departments. More than 240,000 people are treated in the out-patient clinics, a comprehensive entity including more than 70 departments and units.
Shaare Zedek receives no financial support from the Israeli government for research, equipment or education. It relies on the generosity of friends around the world in order to fund and carry out research, upgrade vital equipment and continuously maintain and further expand its facilities.
