On March 2nd, 35 cyclists found themselves alongside the Dead Sea doing something they never imagined — helping raise money for Israelis with limb-loss. The 155 kilometer “Gran Fondo” took them along sweeping desert vistas and daunting mountain climbs but the toughest challenge faced was by those that inspired them and joined them along the way.
One of the riders who joined was a 15 year-old girl named Chaya, a Jerusalem native who is wheelchair-bound due to her stunted legs and
