COVID-19 may have shut down the world, but it takes more than that to shut down Camp Simcha!
This year, Camp Simcha – now officially Without Borders – is still in (nearly) full swing, and our riders and supporters are just as necessary, if not more necessary, than usual. That’s why Bike4Chai will go on, albeit with some modifications to protect the health and safety of the campers, the riders, and everyone involved.
The core of Bike4Chai and its mission is the same: a premier cycling event for riders of varying skill levels, whose enormous proceeds directly benefit the children of Chai Lifeline and their families.
“Simcha” translates to “joy” – the very essence of Camp Simcha. The children of Camp Simcha, who struggle with serious or chronic illness, are granted an unforgettable two-week reprieve from the pain, fear, and challenges of their lives. A summer in Camp Simcha is an extraordinary opportunity for hundreds of children to restore their fighting spirit and renew their determination to defeat illness and suffering.
