Running in memory of Yehudis a"h bas Shalom

Running the Miami Marathon is not something that was ever on our bucket list. But when it comes to Chai Lifeline and helping them continue the amazing things they do, how could we not?

As you may know, my sister Hudis a"h and by extension our entire family, were recipients of Chai Lifeline's amazing kindness during the 2 years she was ill. There was absolutely nothing that they wouldn't do to ease the pain and suffering she was going through. And by raising money for Chai Lifeline, we can help them help other families smile through the pain.

Hudis was so grateful for the support she received from Chai Lifeline and for the magical 2 weeks she spent at Camp Simcha. It meant so much to her to give back and she signed up to run with Team Lifeline in Jan 2017. She raised over $5,000 and was so looking forward to being there. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to make it to Miami but remained so positive and grateful, despite her disappointment.

We're not doctors and can't stop illnesses in the world. But we can support Chai Lifeline who makes it their business to help in any way - physically, emotionally, financially - you name it, they'll find a way to do it.

Thank you!
Shaya and Yocheved (Storch) Hauptman

More on Chai Lifeline:
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. We know they will touch your heart the way they touched ours.

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, we can do this for them. But we can't do this without your support. We need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids. So please, push the donate button and help us put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.
