As many of you already know, I am so excited to be training to run in the Lifetime Miami Marathon this coming February. While running a marathon is a challenge to begin with, there are times in our lives where there is a personal event, or even a person, that challenges us to act out of our comfort zone and accomplish things we never thought we could. For me, that person is Jacob Hersko.

Team Jacob is full of people closest to his heart - grandparents, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends - all individuals who know Jacob and feel so lucky to be able to give back to an organization that has given so much to him and his family, as well. Whether it was providing an after school program like I-Shine to Jacob’s siblings while his parents were in and out of the hospital with him, sending volunteers to Jacobs house, or giving him a summer of his dreams at Camp Simcha Special - Chai Lifeline did it all and for that reason I have chosen to run with Team Jacob in the Lifetime Miami Marathon.

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 a team so close to my heart. So please, push the donate button and help me put smiles on the faces of these children. Let's do this together!
