May 18 – June 14
Tidewater Jewish Journeys, the local organization that was created to support Tidewater’s involvement with the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project’s trips to Israel and beyond, is embarking on its first major fundraiser, JWRP WALKS 2015.
Anyone can participate by going to www.jwrp.org/walks and register as a walker for Tidewater Jewish Journeys. Steps are tracked for this time period by syncing a fit bit or “moves” app to the website. The goal is to walk 100 miles by June 14, about 10,000 steps a day. The next step is to get sponsors. It’s the best of both worlds—raising money for the community and getting in shape at the same time.
National prizes are awarded over the four weeks to participants who reach great heights in walking and fundraising. Free trips to Israel are just some of the prizes.
