The smile of a child is so pure. Does your heart skip a beat when you hear of a child who is suffering? Mine does. I want to be part of bringing a smile, a moment of joy, to the face of a child.
I have had the opportunity to volunteer for various Chai Lifeline Canada events over the past months. I have seen these events bring much needed smiles to the faces of the Chai LIfeline families. I would like to do more for this remarkable organization. I am training to run in the Lifetime Miami Marathon to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. I asked my mother to join me in this, at times seemingly colossal, undertaking. I know the training will be difficult, but together, my mom and I will take every step of that marathon for the kids!
By donating to our fundraising pages, you will be the reason I will be realizing my goal of helping this great organization in a big way!
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.
My family has been a tremendous inspiration to me in making my decision to train to run in the marathon. I will be joining the third generation of Chai Lifeline volunteers. My grandfather, Poppy (Dr. Elliot Dickman), helped Camp Simcha get off the ground by facilitating the necessary medical insurance to ensure a safe and secure environment for the medical procedures to be administered in camp. To show their hakaras hatov, Chai Lifeline honored my Poppy at their gala dinner.
My grandmother, Grandma (Mrs. Esther Rothenstein), cooks food for Chai Lifeline Canada families on a regular basis.
My aunt, Chana Rothenstein, volunteers in so many ways for Chai Lifeline including coordinating the meals made and delivered for the Chai Lifeline Canada families.
My mom and her four siblings have volunteered in many ways for Chai Lifeline including Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special.
Now it is my turn!
