I have been part of Chai Lifeline for a long time. I have seen only some of the amazing things this organization does and heard about so much more. However, in my mind Chai Lifeline does only one thing, Chai Lifeline makes people smile.
Chai Lifeline puts smiles on the faces of thousands of kids who are going through treatment for cancer and other chronic illnesses. Not only do they help the sick child, but they also help the parents and family of the child. There is nothing better than making people smile. For this reason I have decided again to participate in the Miami Half-marathon this February with Team Lifeline to raise money for Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha/Simcha Special. I’m running for something important. I need your help. Push the blue button now to donate.
If you are not familiar with Chai Lifeline, keep reading.
Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 5,800 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 nearly 500 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.
