In honor of mine and Aaron's 10th Wedding Anniversary this November, we have decided to celebrate the occasion by motivating each other to run the Rock ‘n Roll Las Vegas Marathon that will take place on Sunday, November 17, 2019. We’ve coined our journey “10 for 10” - 10k for 10 years :) (To be more precise, I will be participating in the 10k and Aaron will strive for the Half-Marathon.) Over the last ten years we have been fortunate to learn and grow from each other, start a family, experience changes in our careers, and become a part of a community. As we look ahead to the next decade of our marriage, G-d willing, we feel compelled to commit to ourselves by pursuing our health and fitness goals AND to commit to our community by finding increased opportunities to give back and contribute.
Running the marathon with Team Lifeline targets both of these goals.
This pursuit is a personal challenge that we are excited about not only because it is meaningful to us at this milestone, but because we are running as a team to raise money for Chai Lifeline, an incredible organization dedicated to helping 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 it 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, Aaron and I can do this for them. But we can't do this without your support. We need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids.
So please, join me and TEAM MALITZKY in our “10 for 10” journey by clicking the DONATE button to help us put smiles on the faces of the thousands of beneficiaries of Chai Lifeline.
Thank you for your support and your shared interest in making a difference in the lives of others.
