Several years ago, I took a look in the mirror and hated what I saw. My weight had ballooned, walking was painful, I couldn't run more than a few steps without aggravating my plantar fasciitis, and I got out of breath going upstairs. I decided that a change was needed.

I started walking to shul regularly, uphill both ways (seriously - the highest point is between my house and the synagogue). After a few years, my feet stopping aching, I'd lost close to forty pounds, and walking uphill and upstairs was easy. My health was clearly improving, and it was time to do more. I dug out a road bike my wife had bought for me several years ago, but which I'd barely used. Last year, my peak accomplishment was 51-mile ride without a break. I'm ready for a new challenge.

This summer, I am excited to 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 afterschool 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.

My objective is to raise $5,000, and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

On behalf of the children of Chai Lifeline, thank you for your support.
