With my friends and family's support I raised funds for Chai Lifeline and ran the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Vegas a couple of years ago and I am excited to do it again!
Running is a personal challenge, and motivating myself to run for an important cause makes this experience so much more meaningful to me. I am running to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families.
Chai Lifeline provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 5,800 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 nearly 500 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. 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. 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.
Please be my partner in this journey and help me raise as much money as possible for these kids. Any amount matters and can make a difference. Let's give these sick children hope and put smiles on their faces. Let's make their dreams come true.
Best - Bella
