I thought last year was my last year. I wasn’t going to put myself through it again. Three years was enough.

Well......I’m going at it again. For the fourth year in a row, I will be running the Miami Half Marathon in January 2020. Why would I do such a thing, you may ask. What changed my mind ? Who convinced me ? The answer to these questions is THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF CHAI LIFELINE. How could I let them down !!!
Running the marathon allows me and many others like me to raise money for such a worthy cause that’s primary goal and function is supporting kids and families of all walks of life with support, therapy and help in time of need. Whether they ask for it or not, Chai Lifeline is there for them and their families.

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.

I ask for your support to help me reach my goal of $5,500.00, in support of this great and worthy organization whom I’ve witnessed first hand provide a service to families all across North America that is unmatched. Any amount you are able to contribute goes along way. Please click the link below to make your donation and thank you for your support.

And by the way, although it’s a small reason, another answer to why, what and who is making me participate in the marathon this year, well it’s to get my lazy A- - moving more than I typically do.

With your help we will put smiles on hundreds and thousands of kids and families, what better way to start, interrupt or end your day. Don’t delay and donate now.

Thank you
