As some of you may or may not be aware, John and I have taken it upon ourselves to register and train for the Lifetime Miami Marathon that is taking place this January. Running is a personal challenge that neither John nor myself are emotionally prepared for. However, after this crazy year we’ve had, this is our way of saying thank you for all the support we have received. Since my breast cancer diagnosis, our community has stepped up and have continuously shown us love, and we believe it is our mission to now raise ten thousand dollars in order to help send children affected (first or second hand) by cancer to sleep away camp.

We are running for something important. We are running to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization that has helped my entire family tremendously during this last year. The Chai Lifeline volunteers have been absolutely wonderful as they attended almost every chemotherapy session, made sure that my family and I had kosher food awaiting us in the hospital, and most importantly, became our extended family.

Chai Lifeline is an amazing 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 help change lives forever, returning joy and hope and enabling families to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Their most known 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.

Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline and myself can fight each day, if we were able to push ourselves to go through hospital stays and treatments, John and I can run this marathon for them. John and I ask you for your support as we need your help to raise as much money as possible. Please, push the donate button and help us put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together and let’s make dreams come true!

With all our love,
Lindsey and John
