Together, We Can Make a Difference!

Rachel Radfard

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for checking out my page!

G-d willing, I will be running 13.1K this January to help raise money for Chai Lifeline. This is my first marathon, and I am really excited!

I have always wanted to be involved with Chai Lifeline, but I I guess I just didn't really know how to be involved. I also felt like I was always too sensitive to be directly involved with the patients.
A few weeks ago, my roommate (shout out to Racheli!) sent me a link for the marathon, asking me to donate.
I thought, "Wow, that's so awesome!" She said that I should do it too.
Right away, I said, "I think I will."
I love fitness, especially running, and this was the perfect opportunity for me to be involved with Chai Lifeline, the perfect opportunity for me to help them, doing what I love!

Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 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 450 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.

Anything you can give to help me raise money for Chai Lifeline will be a huge help!

Tizku L'mitzvot! :)

All the best- Rachel
