Dana Ginsburg of Potomac, Maryland, has decided to run the Miami Marathon in January 2011 in order to turn her newfound passion for running into something more than just physical activity that benefits her physical health alone. By running as a sponsored-runner as part of Team Lifeline, each and every step she takes will be directed to the purpose of helping children suffering from life-threatening or lifelong illness.
Dana Ginsburg plans to dedicate her run in the memory of her friend, Rebbetzin Zlata Geisinksky z”l of Chabad of Bethesda-Chevy Chase, who recently passed away at the young age of 49 on Rosh Chodesh Tammuz 5770. Zlata was a tremendous source of inspiration to her. It is Dana’s sincere hope that Zlata will be smiling down upon her in Miami while she is running in her merit in a skirt, long sleeves, and a hat – becoming the Jewish woman Zlata always knew she could be.
