Its a New Year with New Goals - Help Support Chai Lifeline

Michael Benarroch

Let the countdown begin.

This being the third year that I will be running the Miami Half Marathon in support of Chai Lifeline, I have decided to take it to the next level. This year I have set new personal goals for completion of the marathon and money raised to support such a worthy and life changing cause. Although both goals are lofty challenges and understanding how both accomplishments would affect the Chai Lifeline children and families, will push me to hit these milestones, with the help of your support and encouragement.

My goals are to beat 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete 13.1 miles and raise over $7,500. Click the link below to push me closer to these milestones. Thank you for your support and wishing you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year !

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.

Best - Michael
