It’s been a long year for nineteen year old Binyamin Zwickler. It started with the diagnosis of cancer,and it will end with the running of the Jerusalem Marathon.
 
Ten months ago, right after he finished high school in New York, all of Binyamin’s plans for life after school were suddenly put on pause, when he was diagnosed with Epithelioid Sarcoma.


Zwickler decided to run the Jerusalem Marathon to raise money for the organization Chai Lifeline. Chai Lifeline is the international children's health support organization that provides crucial emotional, social, and financial assistance to seriously ill children, their families, and communities.
