On October 6, 2013, The Simcha Chapter of the Greater Miami Region in partnership with the City of Sunny Isles Beach engaged in a walkathon for the sole purpose of raising funds for Hadassah Hospitals and its Medical Organization to help find a cure for Breast Cancer. The Hadassah Medical Organization’s perspective embraces and holds a deep conviction that research is the essence of medicine. Hadassah is committed to advancing and developing the field of medicine in Israel by translating insights into practical advances that not only prolong but enhance the quality of life. In light of this, Hadassah has set excellence in research as one of the highest of its goals and made research activity its norm. Hadassah is committed to encouraging its physicians to participate in research and to incorporate them into both, the Israeli and the International World of Medicine.
What a perfect choice of Charity to raise funds for Breast Cancer research. The Hadassah Medical Organization with its dedication and mission. However, without Sunny Isles Beach, Mayor Edelcup, their assistance, efforts and going the extra mile, we would not have been as successful in our walkathon on October 6th, 2013, dedicated to Breast Cancer Research.
The Simcha Chapter 18-240 of The Greater Miami Region of Hadassah is grateful to its participants in The Second Annual Madi Thaler Breast Cancer Walk- A-Thon. We extend our gratitude to the staff of Susan Simpson in the Cultural and Community Department of Sunny Isles Beach, Alayne Yeash, Communications Coordinator, Chief Fred Maas of the Sunny Isles Beach Police Department and his officers, who escorted our walkers, following the decorated Breast Cancer police car.
The Simcha Chapter thanks the community news in making the public aware in their monthly publication of the walkathon and the photographic coverage so graciously received by photographer Leah Einwalter. Our sincere thank you to the Vice Consul of the State of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, Revital Malka, for her support and participation.
