Avrom Horenstein | Monsey, NY

This summer, I will again participate in a two-day, 185 mile bike ride through three states (CT, NJ & NY) to Glen Spey, NY, the location of Camp Simcha, an extraordinary overnight camp, run by Chai Lifeline, which gives children with cancer a vacation from sickness, restoring their spirits and renewing their determination to fight their illness.

The purpose of this ride is to raise funds for Chai Lifeline, which is an organization focused on helping children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Sadly, when my daughter, Ariella, was ill, I learned firsthand the tremendous help and support that Chai Lifeline provides. They visited us in several hospitals, sent food when needed, and helped my other children cope with a situation over which they had no control. Unfortunately, Ariella passed away when she was 8 1/2 years old. Following her death, I became committed to helping this wonderful organization and founded the Ariella Horenstein Music in our Lives program, which sponsors all the music activities within Chai Lifeline, including performances, hospital visits by musicians, group programs and projects.

To train for this ride, I will bike the hills of Harriman & Bear Mountain State Parks and northward, with a 2017 training goal of 3,000 miles, and a cumulative 235,000 feet of climb.

I will be biking to camp on Wednesday and Thursday, August 16th & 17th. My objective is to raise at least $21,000 by then and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Please be a part of my ride this year, and contribute by clicking on the donate button now.

Thank you for supporting me and in doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment and aftermath of serious pediatric illness.

Best Regards,

Day 1

In memory of my precious daughter, Ariella Rivka. Her bravery during a challenging life was unparalleled and she left an indelible impression on so many of us. May her memory be an inspiration to reach new heights and achieve great accomplishments!

In honor of my wonderful parents, who taught me that honesty, hard work and perseverance can overcome any challenge, and that even in our darkest hours, we can find the strength to move on and turn tragedy into great opportunity.
