Jerusalem Winner Marathon

Mrs. Miri Ziv, Israel Cancer Association Director General, and Mrs. Tamar Safar of Mizrahi Tefahot Bank, started the runners in the Jerusalem "Winner" Marathon. This highly popular event is coordinated by the Israel Cancer Association (ICA) in collaboration with the Jerusalem Municipality and Mizrahi Tefahot Bank.
The beautiful weather, the breathtaking Jerusalem landscape and the 3.000 cheerful participants – cancer patients, survivors, families, teenagers, schoolchildren and soldiers – all helped to create a memorable event. Among the runners were some members of the "Yad Lehachlama" (Reach to Recovery) cancer support group, breast cancer survivors who support those diagnosed with the disease, and included the very enthusiastic 82 year old volunteer Naomi.
Guest of Honour at this third International Jerusalem Marathon was Professor Bikles a senior Director of the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Centre and a consultant to the ICA.
