Welcome to my fundraising page!

Heather Zomer

Over 15 years ago I became involved with Chai Lifeline by planning events in Chicago for young professionals. Years later, our good friends Ari Weinberger and Moshe Turk approached Bini about running on the first Team Lifeline. Ten years and many miles later, Bini and I have been proud to run ALMOST every year with Team Lifeline (I think we missed a year when Elah was born the week before the race;)). Each year we wonder if this will be the last year we run with Team Lifeline. Is it too much to pack up and leave our kids for the race? Have we asked our friends and families to donate too many times??? BUT each year after spending an INSPIRING weekend with members of the Team Lifeline family, hearing children and parents who receive unbelievable support from Chai Lifeline we know we will be back.

We are inspired and motivated by the children, parents and siblings we meet every year through Chai Lifeline. They are warriors and heroes and your donation helps them in their fight. The staff of Chai Lifeline works tirelessly to bring these families first class programs, camps, support groups and much more. On January 28th I am running the Miami Half Marathon on their behalf.

Chai Lifeline provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,300 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline's programs and activities changes 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.

The training isn't easy, and the race itself will be quite a challenge too, but I am truly inspired by these children and their daily battle with life threatening or chronic illnesses. I plan to raise $5,000 by race day, and I hope you will help us reach this goal by making a tax-deductible donation. ANY AMOUNT IS AMAZING!

Your support is a critical part of this effort and I know that together we can make a difference to these children. All donations are 100% tax-deductible, and the Team Lifeline website (www.teamlifeline.org) makes donations quick, easy, and secure. Making a donation will only take a minute, so please donate today by visiting - Heather Zomer - Team Lifeline Miami
