Mark Sherman's ALYN Sky-Diving Campaign

By ALYN Hospital

Together, we can change the life of a child!

I am very fortunate to have a terrific family and very good friends. However over the years I'm sure many of you, if not everyone, have said to yourself at least once (I know my wife has), “I'd like to throw that bastard out of an airplane”.

Well you're going to have the opportunity and all...

I am very fortunate to have a terrific family and very good friends. However over the years I'm sure many of you, if not everyone, have said to yourself at least once (I know my wife has), “I'd like to throw that bastard out of an airplane”.

Well you're going to have the opportunity and all for good cause, in fact a great cause.

On April 2nd, I will be participating in an exciting project for ALYN Hospital, Pediatric & Adolescent Rehabilitation Center, The Sky's the Limit.

And ‘cause the sky’s the limit, I will literally be jumping out of an airplane to help raise money for the kids at ALYN Hospital. I’ve seen kids there who suffer from CP or spina bifida, or who were paralyzed in road accidents and are re-learning how to do the most basic things like walking, talking and eating – even learning how to breathe again!

So please, throw me out of the plane!

ALYN Hospital is one of the world's leading specialists in pediatric rehabilitation and is the only facility of its kind in Israel.

ALYN's belief is that it is every child's right to have the highest quality of life attainable and to this end ALYN provides every patient and their family members with all the necessary tools to enable these youngsters to learn how to cope with their condition. The ultimate aim of ALYN is to rehabilitate the youngsters in its care and to return them to their families and to the community as quickly as possible, having provided them with the skills to function as productive, and where possible, independent citizens.

ALYN Hospital is an officially registered non-profit facility and as such receives no automatic Government support whatsoever. Only a portion of every child's rehabilitation costs is reimbursed by the Israel Health Funds or other referring agencies. Consequently the Hospital has to raise funds through donations in order to bridge the ever fluctuating "gap" between these fixed rates and the actual costs of the quality and quantity of the high level multidisciplinary rehabilitation services which are provided to all children who are treated in ALYN. In addition, ALYN has to raise 100% of the donations needed to underwrite the costs of the Hospital's development budget, which includes the purchase of new/replacement equipment, research, special projects and programs.

Donations received are used to underwrite the costs of ALYN Hospital's activities, to ensure that ALYN's children continue to receive rehabilitation treatments of the highest quality possible, for the expansion of the Hospital's research and development and for an Endowment Fund which will insure the continued existence of the Hospital and its activities in times of fiscal crises and emergencies.

Donations to ALYN Hospital are channeled through the Friends of ALYN Society which is a registered non-profit organization raising funds for the ALYN Hospital Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Center.
