This is the 2nd year I am riding to help out this great organization Chai Lifeline by participating in the 11th annual Bike4Chai ride. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer. Unfortunately, I have lost a number relatives including my grandparents Morris & Frieda Beyda a'h, my cousin Joey Beyda a'h, my aunt Sondra Sutton a'h, and my uncle Marty Meneshe a'h all to this dreaded disease. My sister is a multi-time survivor as well so this organization really hits home.
The first summer of a new decade calls for action and therefore I will be partaking in a life-changing event: a 180-mile bike ride through NY, NJ and PA. This is no ordinary ride; it’s an exhilarating cycling event ending at Camp Simcha, a remarkable overnight camp that provides seriously ill children with a vacation from sickness, restoring their spirits and renewing their determination to fight.
Life for a child with cancer or other serious illness is grueling; Chai Lifeline’s flagship programs, Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special, offer 430 children a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. Camp is an oasis of fun, of joy, and of peace for children experiencing dark and turbulent times. To learn more about Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha special, visit campsimcha.org.
My objective is to raise $5,000 by then, and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

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