I am excited and pumped for my 6th year training, fundraising and running the Miami Half Marathon for Team Lifeline/Chai Lifeline.

I will be running in memory of my Dad this year - he died from cancer a little over a year ago. He was my best friend and I miss him so much!

My father was the epitome of good health – he never smoked and was in the gym 6 days a week. Cancer doesn’t care. Cancer doesn’t care if you are a little kid or an old person, a father or a mother, a son or a daughter, strong or weak…Cancer can strike anyone and you are never prepared when it does. Cancer just sucks!

My Dad passed away on March 6, 2016, just a couple of months after I learned he was sick. He was a vibrant 65 year old father and grandfather. He loved his family and he loved people. We all miss him so much. Dedicating my 6th year of fundraising for such an awesome cause in his memory is a fitting tribute as he was such an amazing person. Please join me in making this tribute to my father meaningful!

Chai Lifeline is an amazing organization that provides support to families with kids who have been diagnosed with Cancer and other lifelong illnesses. Chai Lifeline provides relief through volunteers for parents who have difficultly leaving their child’s bedside, but need some time to recharge to be there for their kid. They provide toys and gifts and more to the kids – their volunteers really care and make the kids laugh and bring happiness to an otherwise difficult situation. Chai Lifeline also provides big brother and sisters and other support to siblings of the sick child.

The crowing glory, however, is CAMP SIMCHA! Camp Simcha is the most unbelievable place – it is a two-week summer camp experience like no other. Kids who may be in active chemo treatment or who may be suffering for other illnesses, can feel like a kid again. They can have the most awesome summer camp experience. Don’t take my word for it, check out the videos below.

In honor of my Dad who I miss every day I want to make this my best year yet!

Please help me reach my fundraising goal and give generously to my campaign!

Thank you for your generosity and for supporting such an amazing organization!

With great appreciation,

Eli Leibowitz
