Shea Belsky's Ski A Thon Mitzvah

Shea Belsky will be Bar Mitzvah shortly after the start of the next ski season. He couldn't wait that long to do his good deed (mitzvah) project. 12 1/2 year old Shea skied all day at Hunter Mountain non stop until the lifts closed down to bring attention to the plight of and raise funds to support the kids in Sderot, an Israeli village close by the border with the Gaza Strip. This is the Hudson Valley Time Warner Cable 6 News coverage of Shea's feat, video courtesy of RadXSports.
