WASHINGTON  – The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews has pledged cash for Israel’s needy for every kilometer finished in Friday’s Tel Aviv Marathon.

The fellowship, a US-based foundation that raises $73 million annually for Israel, has pledged NIS 5, or $1.35, for every kilometer completed by every runner in the March 15 Tel Aviv-Gillette Marathon and in its ancillary runs, which include a halfmarathon and a 4.2 kilometer fun run.

The marathon anticipates that 35,000 runners will complete 600,000 kilometers.

The money will go toward food and clothing for needy children ahead of Passover.
