The Inaugural JTFL Challenge will run, worldwide, in November and participants will Walk, Run or Ride and track their progress to complete 15 miles. MSHEF has partnered with Norwood’s Mayors Wellness Campaign for a Healthy Norwood.
The Journey for the Living (JFTL) Challenge is a tribute to Mark Schonwetter, a Holocaust survivor, and his mother and younger sister, who walked 15 miles to escape their hometown in Poland to go to a ghetto where they thought they would be safe.
Journey for the Living Challenge events are held with individuals and teams. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals, organizations and schools to create teams and TAKE THE CHALLENGE.
