My Cousin Sophie

Menachem Bloom

My 5 year old cousin Sophie had some of the best moments of her life at Chai Lifeline’s Camp, Camp Simcha.

That’s why I’ve decided to raise money for Camp Simcha. There were so many people that she loved and who cared about her; friends, teachers, counselors, doctors, nurses- all the people in Chai lifeline. She felt that love and it made her happy.

Camp Simcha is a camp for kids like Sophie. Kids with different illnesses who can’t go to regular camps. At Camp Simcha, each child feels special, like the gem that he or she truly is. Each kid feels like they are at home.

It would mean so much to have you be a part of “Team Sophie” by supporting me in whatever way you can as I run the Miami Half Marathon for the amazing children and staff of Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha.

And for Sophie, who lived and loved every moment.

Thank you so much,
