You may already know that I’m training to run the Team Lifeline Vegas Half Marathon on November 11th 2018. Running my 3rd half marathon is a challenge, but I’m not just in this for the glory. I am 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. Chai Lifeline has had a personal impact on my life and I need to give back! However, I know I can’t do it alone. I need your help.

November 11th will mark exactly one year since the passing of my close friend Princess Arianna Dougan.

I met Ari 3 summers ago in Camp Simcha – a project of Chai Lifeline. We became close friends, shared many beautiful memories and kept up throughout the year. Arianna was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at age 3 and fought strong for 8 years. Through the course of treatment and sickness – Ari wrote songs, performed in dance recitals, created works of art, and shared her love and sparkle with the world. The lessons that Ari shared in friendship, courage, and love have changed my life forever.

In the time since Arianna’s passing, I have dedicated myself to sharing her light and love by helping others challenged with cancer and other illnesses. I miss Ari every day and look forward to running this November in Celebration of her life.

I hope that you will consider making a donation towards my run so that we may give other children fighting pediatric illness a chance to experience Camp Simcha and benefit from all the programs that Chai Lifeline offers. I know that together we can make a difference. I plan to raise over $5,000.00 by race day and I am counting on you to help me reach this goal.

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 - Sarah
