For Grandma! Hyla Weiskind - Chaya Gittel bas Yoseph Dov Baer HaCohen, a"h

Ben and Yogi Weiskind | Baltimore, MD

Ben and Yogi Weiskind

Thank you all for caring.

This ride and the money we raise for it to support Camp Simcha/Special, which provided so much support for our daughter, Sarah Naomi, is dedicated in memory of Grandma, Hyla Weiskind - who passed away from COVID in 2020.

This ride will be quite special for our family as it will be a team effort - Yogie will be riding with me to Camp Simcha to show how much we care.

Yogie has decided to give up his free time on Sundays starting in the spring as well as half of his summer in order to train and prepare to ride 150 miles over two days, to help raise money for children like his sister who have critical medical needs due to illness.

He has invested his own money (and we have helped as well) to buy the equipment needed to do this kind of event.

Yogie has decided to help us raise the money to support at least two campers - a goal of at least $20,000.

To our donors - may your generous support for this truly remarkable organization be a merit for continued good health and success for your entire family.

Thank you,
Ben and Ruchie

Background:

This summer, we are excited to take part in Bike4Chai, an exhilarating 150-mile cycling event benefiting the children and families of Chai Lifeline. Every mile we ride and every dollar we 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.

Our objective is to raise $20,000, and Yogie and I hope you will help us 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.

Ben, Yogie, and Ruchie
