Here we go again! I'm really excited to once again be running in the Miami Marathon as part of Team Lifeline. Running a is a personal challenge, but I’m not in this just for the glory. I’m running for something important. I am running to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. My family experienced their incredible work when my sister Hudis a"h was sick. Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha made Hudis feel normal and hopeful even while she was going through terribly challenging and painful times. Raising money for Chai Lifeline is a small way that I am able to show hakaras hatov as well as help so many other children and their families.

However, I know I can’t do it alone. I need your help.

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 - Yocheved
