While we’re disappointed that we can’t kick a ball together in the traditional way due to Covid-19, our Virtual Competition means we can still support kids with disabilities at Beit Issie Shapiro in Israel. BIS impacts people with disabilities globally and in these trying times they need your support more than ever.
