As you know, I'm a Programmer. I spend most of my time, every day, sitting at a desk, typing away or participating in captivating meetings. Extremely interesting, but not particularly conducive to fitness. Over the past few years, I have watched my three brothers, one after the other, take up the challenge of doing a major bike-a-thon or marathon (each more than once). And while I have spent the past seven years working in an office that has a constant focus on health, and despite the fact that I have long been health conscious, I was always hesitant to join them.

My youngest brother Gavriel, who is now a seasoned runner after losing 80 pounds and running multiple races, has made me a challenge, which I've finally accepted. This coming November, I plan to run the Rock n Roll Las Vegas half-marathon along with him and Team Lifeline.

Long-distance running and fundraising are not generally activities I engage in, so I’d like to explain why I am now.

I have a younger brother that I never really had the chance to know well. Daniel died of Neuroblastoma at only 15 months old. I was only 4 at the time, and my memories from then mostly revolve around spending lots of time in daycare or by friends, while my parents were tending to Daniel. At that time, Chai Lifeline (chailifeline.org) did not exist to provide emotional, social and financial support for sick children and their families. Seeing the work Chai Lifeline does, it aches that my family didn't get the chance to experience the true magic, kindness, and support that this organization offers. I'd like to do my part to make sure that every family who unfortunately needs the support of this organization can get it to the fullest, which is why I plan to run for Team Lifeline in memory of my brother Daniel.

And this is where I need your help.

I need your assistance in raising $3,600 by race day. Your contributions are tax deductible, can be made either on-line teamlifeline.org/team-lifeline-vegas/benprero or by sending me a check (3506 Labyrinth Rd., Baltimore, MD 21215) – and are greatly appreciated.

Help me cross the finish line, and help one of the most remarkable organizations do work to which there really is no comparison. There is nothing like bringing a smile to a sick child, or peace of mind to their family.

Together, we can accomplish something really special.

Wish me luck!
Ben
