We Need you as our Teammates.
Join us as we grow stronger. Together!

together has no limits

A journey of 338 miles begins with just one step.

As wounded soldiers, taking that first step can seem impossible, both physically and mentally. Through brotherhood and perseverance anything is possible.

Last year, we decided to test our bodies and minds like they’ve never been tested before. We created and embarked on the  IRON BROTHER challenge, a strenuous, two-day journey crossing Israel from North to South. From the tip of the country in Nahariya and all the way down to Eilat, 100 injured soldiers powered through 545 kilometers (338 miles) together – running, cycling, swimming and diving. Some of us powered through the entire course, others joined for portions along the way – but we all crossed the finish line, and the only reason we made it through is because we were together.

Throughout this powerful experience, one thing was missing: You. Our partners and supporters across the sea.

In 2022, we need you as our teammates and supporters, sweating shoulder to shoulder with us along the route. Join us as we grow stronger. Together!
