This summer, I am excited to once again take part in Bike4Chai, an exhilarating 100-mile cycling event benefiting the children and families of Chai Lifeline. Every mile I ride and every dollar I raise will help support more than two-dozen essential programs for more than 6,000 children and families confronting pediatric illness, crisis, and loss. These services include counseling and case management, meals delivered to hospitals and homes, transportation to medical appointments, emergency financial assistance, insurance advocacy, i-Shine after-school programming, Big Brothers/Sisters, Project Chai crisis intervention, and Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special, Chai Lifeline’s flagship medically-supervised summer programs.
Life for a child with cancer, disability, or other serious illness is grueling. From the moment of diagnosis, Chai Lifeline’s dedicated staff and volunteers are there to provide joy, hope, and unparalleled care throughout the turbulent medical journey.
This year’s ride has special meaning for me because this past June my Uncle Ira Kostman z”l, with whom I used to do this ride, passed away after a two-year battle with cancer. I witnessed firsthand the challenges presented by serious illness and how important it is to have a strong support system. Chai Lifeline provides that support for thousands of families, making life easier as they deal with pediatric cancer and other equally challenging illnesses.
My objective is to raise $36,000, and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Please contribute generously to this important cause by clicking on the donate button now. On behalf of the children of Chai Lifeline, thank you for your support.
