You may already know that I’m training to run the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas this November. 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. I heard about this and I had to do something. 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. I have personally witnessed the heroism and greatness of this camp.
Back in 2006, I have been diagnosed with Leukemia, went through intense treatment and after much hesitation and doubts my doctor (Doctor Peter Steinherz MSKCC) recommended and encouraged me to go to Camp Simcha for the summer & I must say that summer was the best summer of my life! This is the least that I can do to give back, there are no words to describe what a wonderful place Camp Simcha is, please open your hearts and help me raise this money to help a child struggling with illness forget about his/her situation for a couple of days.

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. I know because I have experienced this first-hand. 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,

Eli S.
