G-d willing, this summer will be my third time riding 150 miles up to Camp Simcha to raise money for Chai Lifeline. It will also be our son Chaim’s third summer as a camper at this wonderful oasis. But it will be the FIRST time that we actually get to celebrate together at the Greatest Finish Line on Earth!
Every mile I ride and every dollar I raise will help support more than two-dozen essential programs for more than 6,000 children like Chaim, 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 of course---Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special, Chai Lifeline’s flagship medically-supervised summer programs.
These past 2+ years have been tough on all of us. But they have been especially grueling on children with chronic illness and immunocompromising conditions. We have seen first-hand just how important Chai Lifeline has been in helping families survive and thrive in this new normal.
Please join me and contribute generously to this important cause by clicking on the donate button now. My objective is to raise $40,000, and I hope you will help me reach (or even surpass!) this goal.
On behalf of the children of Chai Lifeline, thank you so much for your support!
