For the last few summers, I've been privileged to spend 4 weeks in the #HappiestPlaceOnEarth - CAMP SIMCHA. The children there, battling cancer and other terminal illnesses inspire me to be better in every way. The last few years, I've challenged myself by riding Tour De Simcha into #TheWorldsGreatestFinishLine and witnessing the joy on the campers faces as we ride in.
On August 17, 2022 we lost a precious camper, Michelle Begelfer A"H, who I was zoche to know. Her exuberant smile lit up any room she walked into. She had a vivacious personality that just made everyone so comfortable around her. I wanted to be best friends with her. Sadly, she passed before I reached that goal. So...
This January, I will be running in the Miami Marathon/Half-Marathon as part of Team Lifeline to benefit children with cancer, disabilities, and other serious medical conditions, specifically Michelle, as that is what she would have wanted. Every dollar I raise and every mile I run will benefit Chai Lifeline, an international children’s health support network that provides critical year-round programs and services to nearly 6,000 families confronting pediatric illness.
While running all those miles will be challenging, I am excited to help raise awareness and funds for such an important and worthy cause.
My goal is to raise $5,000, but I need your help. Every donation is 100% tax deductible. Please join me in supporting this important organization by contributing to my personal runner page.
