10 YEARS !!!

That’s how many years my wife, Deena David, has been participating in the annual Chai Lifeline Miami Marathon with Team Lifeline in support of Camp Simcha!

I felt that in honor of her TENTH year it would be appropriate for me to join Team Lifeline for my FIRST year!

To that end, I will be running the 10K in the Las Vegas Marathon in November as part of the Penina’s Helping Hand team, (PHH).

Running a is a huge 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 Penina's Helping Hand (PHH - a division of Chai Lifeline), a wonderful organization dedicated to helping children, who are orphans or who have a very sick parent, 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.

Penina’s Helping Hand provides support to young children who are orphans or have a seriously ill parent. It is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary woman who will always be remembered for her love, compassion, and tzedaka, Penina Rubinoff, OBM. Unparalleled emotional and social support are offered to each member of the ill parent’s family. Case management, counseling, innovative tutorial programs, special trips, gala holiday parties, toy drives, family retreats, and crisis intervention services all bring help and hope to children, families, and communities.

Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that 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. 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.

Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,
Michael (Avrumi) David
