Advanced and professional medicine + holistic support= saving lives!
While doctors remove the disease from the child, Rachashei Lev takes the child out of the disease.
The collaboration between the medical staffs in the hemato-oncology departments and Rachashei Lev - improves recovery and saves the lives of hundreds of children with cancer!
This year Tel Aviv Marathon, the teams will continue the collaboration, and will run together, doctors and nurses, with Rachashei Lev staff and volunteers, and together will raise funds for life-saving treatments that are not included in the health basket for children with cancer!
This is your opportunity to run both with, and for, children with cancer – to empower these kids, encourage them and make sure they are not alone in their pursuit of health.
Join us and together we will help these brave children fight and defeat the disease.

Rachashei Lev – the national support center for children with cancer – was established in 1989, and is Israel’s leading organization that promotes and supports children with cancer and their families. The nonprofit assists about 500 children and adolescents with cancer every year, regardless of religion, race or gender – kids and from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Rachashei Lev’s primary services are medical, social and psychological; the goals are to maintain the morale of the children, help them cope with the arduous challenges of the illness and alleviate their suffering.
Rachashei Lev was founded with a child-focused vision and a deep understanding of the needs that cancer patients and their families have. These are children and families have had their worlds turned upside down, and their daily routines have transformed into activities that center on a fight for life. The organization’s core mission is to help these children and their loved ones as they cope with their difficult situation – advising, counseling and supporting them mentally, physically and financially, and empowering them with strength and hope on the road to recovery.
Rachashei Lev has adopted the pediatric oncology departments at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center and Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, which, as centers of excellence, treat children with the most complex and challenging cancer cases in Israel. The nonprofit has a permanent presence in these units, delivering a broad range of daily activities and special events to assist the children. Rachashei Lev’s comprehensive professional team collaborates with the elite Israeli National Service squad and dedicated volunteers, providing guidance and personal support from the moment the child is diagnosed and throughout the stages of treatment. The emergency hotline and active staff members work 24/7 to support hospitalized children.
We believe that when professional clinical services and state-of-the-art medical care are consolidated with Rachashei Lev’s complementary support services, it is possible to rebuild in patients and facilities that which cancer destroys.
Together with you and thanks to your support, we will compete in this real and symbolic race to give children the strength to beat the cancer!
