We are happy to report that Israel's gradual return to the 'Old-Normal' has very much enabled us to resume our operations at full capacity. Eitan-Everybody Can is currently proceeding in its planned trajectory, while diligently working on the enhancement of our core-programs, all of which are support disabled individuals through a unique model of physical exercise and groups sports. At present we have in our teams of trainers 60 paid professionals and 40 volunteers, working in 50 locations across the country with 480 disabled individuals.

 

A recent highlight has been the successful return of the annual Eitan Run, attended by President Yitzhak Herzog and joined by more than 1800 runners, both disabled and non-disabled. This socially empowering event has become a tradition, attracting thousands of individuals for a one-of-a-kind, unifying experience. Finally, we are pressing on with our plans for expansion, with more and more training teams forming throughout Israel's periphery.

 

As more people are becoming aware of the unique benefits of our programs, the demand for our services is growing faster than our ability to deliver them. We are looking for new partners and supporters to ensure that all Israelis with special needs are able to benefit from professional fitness training.

Report to GlobalGiving

 

We are happy to report that Eitan-Everybody Can is continuing to grow, making our unique model of empowerment through sports accessible to more children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. Today, over 550 people with disabilities train with Eitan in about 50 locations in Israel. We now work with over 90 salaried and volunteer coaches and have established partnerships with Nike Israel, Porsche, and the Ministry of Culture and Sports. We are becoming a more well-known organization in Israel and were written about in mainstream Israeli publications including Ynet and Globes. One of our trainees even auditioned for Ninja Israel! As more people are becoming aware of the unique benefits of our programs, the demand for our services is growing faster than our ability to deliver them. We are looking for new partners and supporters to ensure that all Israelis with special needs are able to benefit from professional fitness training.

Marathon Tel Aviv - Feb 2021
Marathon Tel Aviv - Feb 2021

Only 5 months ago, when we started our GlobalGiving campaign we had 383 trainees with special needs getting their professional workout. Today, we are proud to have 552 (!) trainees. That is an enormous growth! and everyone of you had a part of it.

Last week, some of our trainees participated in the Ra'anana race and Tel Aviv marathon. Both events were exciting and empowering and that is exactly what we want to achieve.

We keep growing and expanding to other areas around Israel and we keep our training quality at the maximum. But we still have a long road ahead of us and you are more than welcome to continue with us on our journey.
