HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, DECEMBER 19, 2014 Biking the Negev for Alyn Rehab Hospital in Jerusalem Tom Shipley with another biker on the road to Eilat. The following is a letter that Jim and Rachel Shi- pley's son, Tom, sent to the donors to his 350-mile bi- cycle ride through the Negev desert for the benefit of Alyn hospital. "Tom, of course, is one of our four former Orlando resident children now scattered across the globe. Tom went, as they all did, to Winter Park High. Tom then went on to gradu- ate from UCF before joining the IDF as a commando," said the proud papa. Tom and his wife, Pam, and their two daughters, Ayelet and Daniella now live in Demarest, N.J. I want to thank you for your donation in support- ing me and the children of the Alyn Rehabilitation Hospital in Jerusalem. To- gether, you helped me raise over $12k, which exceeded my last year's fund raising efforts. There were over 400 riders from throughout the world on this year's 5-day charity ride. All together over $1 million was raised this year for the Alyn Chil- dren's Hospital. I had the opportunity to tour the hospital and meet the kids, volunteers and staff at the hospital. I was able to see first-hand how they can give kids with even the most severe disabilities, abilities. There were even eight children who worked with a therapist for a year to enable them to have a special off-road ride using specialized bikes in order to be part of this year's event. These children trained for three months to be able to participate. I was part of a group of 50 on-road riders who selected the Challenge Route, which was the hardest on-road route. We biked 350 miles and climbed over 25,000 feet throughout the hills in the Negev desert, from the Great Ramon Crater to Eilat then finished the five days with a steep ascent up through the hills that surround Jerusalem to the hospital. After five days, I was sore and exhausted when we finished the final climb up to the Alyn Hospital. As we crossed the finish line, we were greeted by the staff and the volun- teers dancing and singing at the top of their lungs. The children were beating drums and smiling at us as we past. As I looked around Tom Shipley with a patient of the Alyn Rehabilitation Hospital at the finish line. me, I could feel my fellow cyclist's energy level spike, our heartbeats quicken, and we couldn't help but feel the emotion of this amazing experience. I was especially moved this year by having my eldest daughter, Ayelet, who is spending the year in Israel, at the finish cheering me on. After all the riders had arrived at the hospital, there was an emotional ceremony with the riders, supporters and the chil- dren of the Alyn hospital. We were also introduced to young adults who have completed their rehabilita- tion and are now part of the Israeli society. I humbly appreciate the outpouring of support. To- gether we were able to raise money and awareness for the Alyn Children's hospital, which is truly changing the lives of these children. Warmest regards & Shalom, Tom OB TL ARY RUTH GAMPEL ZEMEL Ruth Gampel Zemel of Altamonte Springs, Fla., for- merly of South Orange, N.J., died Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014. She was 89 years old.
