Michael Jaeger – Our Marathon Hero

PhotoIn 2014, Michael ran his first Marathon which he completed in 4 hours and 30 minutes, raising an astonishing £8,000 for JGD UK and Kisharon.

This year Michael is back! But this time not just for one marathon. Michael will be running the London and New York marathons this year, raising money for JGD UK and Camp Simcha!

When thinking about what inspired him to run for JGD UK, Michael wrote, “Many of you know our dear friends, Jane and Ian Pearl, and their beautiful children and I have been inspired by their dedication and cheery outlook in spite of the challenges that they face in dealing with their son’s condition.”

JGD UK is dedicated to raising awareness, management and prevention of Jewish genetic disorders like the one Chanochi Pearl is affected by.
