Last year, I participated in my first Team Lifeline event, the Miami Half-Marathon. You may already know, but this was no easy task for me. I am not a self-identified runner! However, Chai Lifeline is an incredible cause so I signed up to participate in the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon this year. While the race is typically in November, I am not sure when it will actually take place, or if it even will this year. Regardless, I am committed to training and fundraising because Chai Lifeline is an essential organization that needs help all year round, with or without a pandemic.
Throughout the year, Chai Lifeline provides emotional, social, and financial assistance to more than 5,900 children and their families. Whether it’s counseling, case management, meals delivered to hospitals and homes, transportation to medical appointments, insurance advocacy, volunteering or Big Brother and Big Sister programming, or Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special medically-supervised summer camps, Chai Lifeline’s innovative programs and services help families navigate the complexities of childhood illness and restore joy and happiness. To get a better sense 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 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!
