As of October 28, 2016 I finally decided to run the the January 29, 2017 Team Lifeline half marathon in Miami to raise money for Toronto children suffering from life threatening illnesses. Sorry it took so long to decide, but it's a huge commitment. A patient of mine today asked if they could support me for the run so I decided to once again run it.
Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 children and their families every year.
Your support will directly help the Toronto kids and their needs. I have seen first hand the magical loving impact they have made on the lives of the children and their famalies. Chai Lifeline´s programs and activities change their lives forever, returning joy and hope and enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Its most famous program is Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special. Every year these two camps offer 450 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To get a better idea of what Chai Lifeline does for families, please watch the videos below. I know they will touch your heart the way they touched mine.
Training for me is hard and time consuming but every time I complete the run and see the impact your donations have made I know that it was worth it all.
I am 57 years old and not sure that I can keep on doing this , so here it is: I need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids.
So please, click on the donate button right now and help me put smiles on the faces of sick children and their families. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.
