Thank you for visiting my page!

This has been a long time coming but I finally was able to join Melissa to run for Team Cara in this year's Chai Lifeline race! Due to COVID-19, this year's race is being called Team Lifeline Without Boarders, and while we won't be racing together in sunny Miami this year I am excited to be part if this team and run even in a wintery Chicago. Melissa's commitment to Team Lifeline has been an inspiration for years and excited to finally begin this journey.

COVID-19 may be here, but pediatric illness has not gone away. That’s why I’ve decided to join Team Lifeline and run in support of Chai Lifeline, the Jewish community’s largest children’s health support network. Every dollar I raise and every mile I run will help Chai Lifeline continue to be there for families confronting illness and loss during these difficult times.

Chai Lifeline offers more than two-dozen year-round programs and services, including professional case management and counseling, transportation to medical appointments, meals delivered to hospitals and homes, emergency financial assistance, crisis intervention, insurance and medical advocacy, i-Shine afterschool programming, family events and retreats, Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special medically-supervised summer programs, and so much more. All programs are provided free of charge thanks to generous supporters and friends like you.

We cannot allow this pandemic to stop us from helping children with life threatening and lifelong illnesses. These children are counting on us, and I hope I can count on you too. Please help me reach my goal and raise as much money as possible for these incredible kids. Your tax-deductible contribution will have a direct impact on lives dimmed by pediatric illness when they need it most. Together, we can make a difference to Chai Lifeline’s more than 5,900 children and families around the globe.

Thank you for your support!
