Running for mom, Dr. Van and the kids. Join me!

I have decided to run (slash walk ;)) the Miami half marathon to raise money for Chai Lifeline/ Camp Simcha on January 28th. As the head nurse at Camp Simcha Special, a camp for children with various medical diseases, I see first hand how the happiness and confidence the campers gain in camp help them battle their diseases all year.

I will for the second time be running in the merit of my mother, Dvora Leah bas Harav Yeshaya Dovid. She was and is my greatest role model and biggest cheerleader and supporter for any endeavor I have undertaken.

This year I am joining team infirmary in running in memory of our fearless leader, Dr. Robert Van Amerongen, Itamar Tzvi ben Yitzchak who passed away this past March. Dr. Van was my preceptor for life for all things medical and leadership with empathy and fun.

And of course doing it for the kids!

All donations are tax deductible. Any amount you are able to contribute to my campaign would mean so much to me.
