Here we go again! My 3rd half-marathon coming up together with Team Lifeline! My life has changed for the better since teaming up with Chai Lifeline to help raise funds for their many incredible programs. I have such hakaras hatov (gratitude) to Chai Lifeline for being there for Hudis when she needed them most and hope you can join me in helping them put smiles on so many more faces.

**You may already know that I’m training to run in the Lifetime Miami Marathon this February. Running a is a personal challenge, but I’m not in this just for the glory. I’m running for something important. I am running to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. However, I know I can’t do it alone. I need your help.

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.

All the best,
