Live every day with love not hatred and you will accomplish so much more in life.”

LIVINGSTON, NJ, USA, November 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On Sunday, November 14, The Mark Schonwetter Holocaust Education Foundation (MSHEF) will host a LIVE Walking Event for the Journey for the Living (JFTL) Challenge with special guest, Mark Schonwetter. JFTL Challenge is designed to build awareness, and support the mission of the MSHEF. The Live Walking Event for the JTFL Challenge will be held at the Oval in Livingston, NJ on November 14, 2021 at 11am. The kickoff event takes place just a few days after the Kristallnacht commemoration on November 9th. On November 9, 1938, the Nazis unleashed pogroms against Germany’s Jewish community, known today as Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. These violent anti-Jewish demonstrations broke out across Germany, Austria, and the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia.

The JTFL Challenge brings together friends, families, businesses, schools, faith-based groups - people from all walks of life - aimed at celebrating the lives of those whose lives were touched by the Holocaust, remembering those lost, and educating generations to come.

The Inaugural JTFL Challenge will run, worldwide, in November and participants will Walk, Run or Ride and track their progress to complete 15 miles.

The Journey for the Living (JFTL) Challenge is a tribute to Mark Schonwetter, a Holocaust survivor, and his mother and younger sister, who walked 15 miles to escape their hometown in Poland to go to a ghetto where they thought they would be safe.

Journey for the Living Challenge events are held with individuals and teams. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals, organizations and schools to create teams and TAKE THE CHALLENGE. Go to https://www.charityfootprints.com/journeyfortheliving/ to register for the JTFL Challenge.
