Once again I am fortunate to be able to challenge myself to participate in the Chai Lifeline/Camp Simcha/Team Lifeline marathon. I have seen first hand how Chai Life changes the lives of Children and their families while facing cancer and life long disabilities. Every year hundreds of kids enjoy medically supervised Camp Simcha, a camping experience as no other. They provide 5,900 children with counseling, case management, crisis and trauma intervention, meals delivered to hospitals and homes, transportation to medical appointments, insurance advocacy, i-Shine after school programming, Big Brothers and Sisters. Chai Lifeline’s innovative services help families navigate the complexities of childhood illness and restore joy and happiness.
This year Chai Lifeline's services have been invaluable in helping children and adults cope with the trauma of the war both here and in Israel. Their presence in Israel is felt more than ever. Can you imagine a child going through chemo and then being displaced by war ??? Chai Lifeline stepped up to the plate and made sure that no child missed therapy aside from the all the other services they provided.
Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves through hospital stays and treatments, I can do this for them. But I can't do this without your support. I need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids. I’ve set a challenging goal for myself to raise $12,500 in support of Chai Lifeline. Your generous donation will help me move closer to my goal and make a difference in the lives of so many sick children. Let's do this together!
