Joel Schlessinger recently made a donation to MaxInMotion, a non-profit foundation started by Jonah Shacknai that helps financially disadvantaged children in Arizona participate in organized sports.
Joel Schlessinger supports this non-profit organization whole-heartedly.
“I was pleased to see that this charity was started for financially disadvantaged children as this is something that can make a huge difference in a child’s life,” said Joel Schlessinger.
This new non-profit organization started on June 7 in memory of Max Shacknai, Jonah Shacknai’s 6-year old son that passed away in July 2011.
“This is a great way to keep the memory alive of a young man that I knew and respected. Max Shacknai was a vivacious and intelligent child who would have loved to have seen this.”
MaxInMotion will provide children with opportunities to learn valuable life lessons such as teamwork, commitment, health and fitness. The foundation will work with other non-profit organizations that enroll children in athletics regardless of ethnicity, special needs or socioeconomic status.
In a time of tremendous cuts to school programs, Jonah Shacknai believes this organization will serve a dire need in many communities where children have limited opportunities.
