Sadly, this year's race is in memory of Abraham Asher Hasno hy"d of Kiryat Arba who was killed al Kiddush Hashem (glorifying G-d's name), when he was run over by a terrorist last year on a Hebron Hills road. Abraham was a man full of good deeds and a doer for the greater community. He organized and taught Torah classes for kids in Kiryat Arba and was known as 'the grandfather of the youth'. With a full and happy heart he always helped people in need, worried about their well-being, and provided food and assistance to local chayalim (soldiers). May his memory be blessed.
