About

For the first time, I will be running in the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday 12 October 2014.

To mark the occasion, I am raising funds for the Melbourne Jewish Community Charity Fund (MJCF)

For over 50 years the MJCF has worked to address poverty within the Melbourne Jewish Community. MJCF is a grassroots volunteer-run organisation, working directly with those in-need, to improve life opportunities, reduce homelessness, vulnerability and restore dignity into peoples lives.

MJCF's purpose is to relieve the suffering and helplessness which poverty brings, addressing immediate financial crisis while also developing long-term solutions. MJCF provides clients with access to a range of services including social-worker/counselling, vocational-training, addiction recovery programs, camp scholarships, material-aid, shelter, healthcare/medicine, food and clothing, financial-planning, mobility services, referrals and practical support. MJCF work in partnership with the community to improve quality of living and opportunities for those in need .

In 2013 MJCF provided more than $1.3m of assistance, including more than $450,000 in rental and utility bill assistance. More than $240,000 was provided to families for food purchases and over $150,000 for other living expenses.

Your contribution to MJCF will help somebody in need.
