YALLAH! Get Active for IsraelIn addition to Pitch for Israel, you can sign up for YALLAH! Get Active for Israel and use your time playing softball to travel virtually in Israel. Or run, bike, walk, roll, swim, row or yoga! Whatever you choose, log your activities, and watch yourself move along a map of your route. Any activity counts, even stationary machines! Our fitness platform, My Virtual Mission, converts your exercise into distance and keeps track of your progress along the route. Want to see where you are? Use the Google Streetview function to look around your location in Israel. There are many things to see along every route! For more information, click here.
Everyone who completes a route gets something, but raising at least $500 gets you 10% of your fundraising dollars back to you in gift cards to national sports and health oriented stores like Sporting Life, Sports Experts, and more.
