Sports for a Cause
The Jewish Center of Princeton is holding “sMiles for Adam,” a virtual 100-mile challenge “from the homeland to home plate” in honor of the late Rabbi Adam Feldman, who died suddenly last year. Participants are invited to run, bike, swim, or walk in their own neighborhood and track their progress and that of their friends online.
The “virtual route” features stops important to Feldman’s life including Jerusalem, Israel; the Jewish Center, where he was rabbi for nearly 15 years; and Citizens Bank Park, home of his favorite baseball team, the Philadelphia Phillies.
Register online at tucan.fitness/smiles. Cost is $18, or $36 with a t-shirt. The challenge runs from Sunday, August 16, through Friday, September 18. All proceeds benefit the Rabbi Adam Feldman Memorial Fund.
