Go the Distance

A Triathlon Fundraiser Supporting Interfaith Philadelphia's 15th Anniversary

The work of creating a region of collaboration, peace, and interfaith understanding can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. On June 23, Interfaith Philadelphia's Founder and Executive Director, Abby Stamelman Hocky, took that on quite literally as she participated in Queen of the Hill, an annual all-female sprint triathlon in Mullica Hill, New Jersey.

In honor of Interfaith Philadelphia's 15th Anniversary, Abby is committed to raising $5,000 in donations to support its increasingly important work.

Will you get behind Abby and invest in making the Philadelphia region one where all people are valued, distinctive traditions are welcomed, and people of diverse backgrounds collaborate to shape a just and compassionate society?
