Running Again for a Great Charity.

William Sharfman

Dear Friends,

I am running the Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon for Chai LIfeline for the 6th time. Last year, with your generous support, we were the top fundraisers for the event. Let's do it again this 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 - Bill

As a kid who couldn't afford to go to camp, It's an honor to help Dr Sharfman who's been helping me since 1992. God Bless you.
