Hi my name is Rivka Shotkin. I am 16 years old. A year and a half ago I was in a skiing accident leaving me paralyzed from the chest down. Chai Lifeline is an incredible organization that reached out to my family immediately after my accident. They did everything they could to make sure that me and my family were taken care of. From bringing meals to the hospital, to sending toys home for the kids, they were always just one call away. For a while I wanted to do something to repay them for all they did for me but I didn’t know where to begin. This July, I spent two incredible weeks at Camp Simcha. I realized that there would be no better time then now to give back. I decided to take on the challenge of joining the Miami marathon. While racing 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. Every dollar I raise and every mile I race will benefit Chai Lifeline.
