Wow! Congratulations to our friend and Migdal Ohr ambassador Sam Silverberg who has successfully completed the David Groggins 4x4x48 challenge to run 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours. Sam dedicated his run to raising funds for the children of Migdal Ohr.
Sam was inspired by David Goggins who he calls an “ultra athlete” all about achieving his personal best and pushing himself well past his comfort zone
David is a retired Navy SEAL and the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training. He graduated the U.S. Army Ranger School with honors, and completed Air Force Tactical Air Controller training. David Goggins continues to defy all odds. For David it is about choice and he puts himself through some of the hardest of military training programs in the country for no other reason than to challenge himself and discover what he is made of. He has mastered his mind and body to overcome a state of being a perpetual victim and has transformed into a world class ultra athlete and record holder.
Sam says, “I decided to take on his ‘Can’t Hurt Me’ attitude and created meaning to drive me to succeed in this short and very intense challenge. This is where I turn to you - knowing that I am doing this for an important cause and helping the children of Migdal Ohr with you behind me is the only thing that will make this possible. I need to know that I’m helping those in need. I need these children to know that we are behind them and that “Can’t Hurt Me” attitude and determination is something that not only they have, but that we have together with them!”
Just as David Goggins himself is doing daily, we can together help raise a generation of dignified, capable adults who are moving society forward, defying the odds, and exceeding even their own expectations by partnering with and supporting Migdal Ohr.
Sam, we are so inspired by your perseverance and drive to stretch your limits! Thank you for spreading light and caring for Israel’s most vulnerable children.
Let’s keep it going! If you have a great idea for how you can be an ambassador for Migdal Ohr - whether it’s by running a marathon, bringing Midgal Ohr to your school, twinning or a bar/bat mitzvah or wedding please reach out to Atara Solow at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
