After running the Las Vegas marathon last year for Chai Lifeline, I have to admit- I'm hooked! The work that Chai Lifeline does for the children and their families is unparalleled!

This year, I'd like to dedicate my run to two special people. Cheli Bergman (Rechel bas Shamshon Aharon Tzvi), a young little girl who unfortunately lost her battle, was a truly special girl, the child of even more amazing parents. Chai Lifeline was a crucial part of their lives while going througha very difficult time.
The next person will always hold a very special place in my heart. Moish Wein was not only my boss, but a friend and a mentor and more importantly "Zaidy Moish" to my children. Moish was the strongest person I had ever met and unfortunately lost his battle just over a year ago. Not a day goes by that myself, my husband or my children, don't bring up a memory of "Zaidy Moish". He taught me so much and I will forever be indebted to him. I am running in memory, but more importantly, in honor, of these two very special people.

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 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.

Best - Alumah
