WELCOME to Team Stephen!

Susan Pitts

Here we are (above), Jason and I at the marathon finish line, last year! Stephen's picture placed across my chest, his presence in every breathe of commitment as we reached our goal. Each and every one of you filled our hearts, while we felt deep gratitude for your loving and generous support.

The 2017 annual event honoring the memory of my son, Stephen, is soon approaching. I'm running (mostly walking) in the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas 10K with Team Lifeline this November. Jason right next to me. His encouragement and solid strength moves me forward every year. Each one of you inspire me to work hard to meet my goal.

I am raising money to provide very sick children with two weeks of happiness at Camp Simcha ...away from unrelenting devastation that has entered his/her life. Stephen loved this camp and referred to it as a "slice of heaven." Stephen would have wanted to be honored in this way... helping other kids struggling with cancer, like himself, get to Camp Simcha.

Training for the marathon is not easy, but neither is fighting a devastating illness. If children can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and painful treatments, I can do this for them. We can do this together.

Time moves on and the longing for my son remains every hour of every day. There is no closure. Annually honoring Stephen's life has become an integral purpose of my life.

I need your help. Please open your heart with compassion for very sick children, as we honor the memory of our beloved Stephen.

Please click on the donate button. No minimum. Every dollar matters! It's easy and secure and takes just a minute. Please do it now, as distractions move us quickly away. Please join me and Jason and family and friends on Team Stephen as we honor Stephen's memory.

Fill your pockets with angels, as you place smiles on these kid's faces.

With boundless love and infinite gratitude,
(Stephen's and Jason's mother)
