On Sun, 6 March 2016 Elwood Shule team ‘Chai Riders’ joined 3500+ riders for the 10th annual MS Melbourne Cycle. Rabbi Shmuel cycled 50km in support of Elwood Shule member Monique Leventer, who lives with Multiple Sclerosis.

Our team raised an incredible $28,752.44 for Multiple Sclerosis awareness and support and received the top fundraising team award and top individual fundraiser award, with Mendy Same raising $14,259.36.

In accepting the highest fundraising award trophy Rabbi Shmuel thanked our Elwood Shule community and the Jewish community in general as we rallied together in a relatively short period of time, recognising and seizing the opportunity to help a vital cause - truly living up to Judaism’s fundamental principles of Tzedaka and Tikkun Olam - doing our part in making this world a better place for all of humanity.

THANK YOU for your sponsorship, support and good wishes - With your help Rabbi Shmuel raised $5,046.12!

My G‑d bless us all to be able to continue pedalling through life in good health!

Last year (2015) thanks to the outpouring of Elwood Shule support Team Chai Riders raised $10,739 coming 3rd in the community fundraising category! Rabbi Shmuel raised $5677 (6th place).
