This summer, I am excited to take part in Bike4Chai, an exhilarating 107 kms cycling event in Caledon Region on June 28, benefiting the children and families of Chai Lifeline. Every kms 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.
We got to experience firsthand, how they do this. Through the darkest period of our lives, Chai Lifeline was with us every step of the way. They did all they could for Zalman, to make him happy, to make him smile. Zalman LOVED Chai Lifeline and knowing someone from chai lifeline was on the way, always cheered him up.
Zalman loved Chai Lifline, in his memory we started the Zalman fund at chai lifeline.
Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, like Zalman did, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and treatments, we can do this for them.
I am forever indebted to Chai Lifeline for what they gave to Zalman and my family, join me in helping them, help other kids! But I can't do this without your support. I need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids. So please, push the donate button and help me put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.
While biking up those hills will be challenging, I am excited to help raise awareness and funds for such an important and worthy cause.
My objective is to raise $3,600, 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.
