Once again this summer, together with my grandson Moshe Levy,I will be biking 180 miles through 3 states to Camp Simcha, an extraordinary overnight camp that gives children with cancer a vacation from sickness. A summer in camp restores their spirits and renews their determination to fight!
The ride won't be easy, but neither is life for a child with cancer or other serious illness. Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special, are Chai Lifeline's flagship programs. Every year these two camps offer 420 children a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To learn more about the camps, visit campsimcha.org.
Last year I found this ride to be inspiring and uplifting for me personally both by the sum raised for this worthy cause and the tremendous "lift" the entry into camp by 500 cyclists gave to the children. One of the photos on my page is of Moshe and me entering camp at the end of 180 miles of riding.
I will be biking to camp on Wednesday and Thursday, August 16th & 17th. My objective is to raise at least $18,000 by then and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

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