The Ambassador of the Run to Remember
Join Run to Remember ambassador, Holocaust survivor and running pioneer, Sylvia Weiner and sign up to our running team.
Sylvia was born in Poland and survived a ghetto and several concentration camps. After coming to Montreal, Sylvia discovered running as a tool to help her cope with post-traumatic stress. Today, she has participated in over 2,000 races. She was the first woman to ever win the Boston Marathon masters division.
The History of the Run
The Run to Remember was initiated by Jamie Benizri 3 years ago. This year, he will run the Montreal Oasis Full Marathon in memory of Isak Cieply, his late grandfather, a Holocaust survivor.
The mission of the Run to Remember is to raise funds, promote, sustain and develop essential Holocaust education and remembrance work as well as the respect and promotion of human rights today. Funds generated will be donated to the Montreal Holocaust Museum.Join our running team
