Team lifeline marathon

Some of you may already know that I’m training to run the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas marathon this November for my 4th year. Running a is a personal challenge especially with my illness but it is worth it because I’m running for the organization that has done so much for me- Chai lifeline. I can spend days trying to explain how much they mean to me and I would still have more to say. There aren’t enough words in the English language to fully explain how much chai lifeline does but I’ll try by focusing on the part of CLL that saved me.
Camp simcha is a camp that me and my sick friends get to go to for 2 weeks every summer where we get to leave our worries behind & be regular kids. We have the time of our lives & it’s what gets us through our year of pain, doctors & hospitalizations. It’s where I’ve made my dearest friends and we view it as more of a home than a camp. The staff there is phenomenal, they exude happiness and excitement at all times and it rubs off onto us. We can be in the infirmary & the nurses will be blasting music, dancing with us & swing us around on iv poles to make the experience as positive as they can. We have awesome activities throughout the day and each kid is assigned their own counselor. My first year of Camp simcha is where I met my amazing counselor Tehila and she’s always there for me. I do this race with her and fundraise as a way to give back to this organization that has done so much for me and THOUSANDS of others world wide. Tehila pushes me in a wheelchair through the race until I get up to do the last mile. It’s a lot of work & we can’t do this alone. I need YOUR help. Donate whatever you can, share this with whoever you can, and spread awareness. I work tirelessly with the help my doctors and physical therapists to be able to participate in this race by running the last mile because that’s what chai lifeline taught me. To never give up on my dreams. That I can do ANYTHING I want to do, maybe I’d have to do it differently but I CAN do it, my only limitation is myself. And with YOUR help I get to enable their continuation of passing this message onto the kids of this organization. Help me spread the happiness that is chai lifeline. Thank you, T’isku l’mitzvos!
- All the best, Naomi
