Once again, I am running the Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon for a great charity, Chai Lifeline. It is hard to believe, but this will be my fifth year!. Last year, with your overwhelming generosity, we were the top fund raisers for the event. This year I have upped my goal and have committed to raise $23,000 for this great charity.
Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 seriously ill children and their families every year. 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 is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go 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. So please, push the donate button and help me put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.
Best - Bill
