This summer, for the eleventh time, I am excited to take part in Bike4Chai, an exhilarating 100-mile cycling event benefiting the children and families of Chai Lifeline.
This ride has become a highlight of my year, as I know I am doing my part to help the children of Chai Lifeline. Getting to know Adam, Peri, Binny, and so many others that have benefitted from Camp Simcha and the many other programs that Chai Lifeline provides has reminded me how much we need to appreciate life. It’s not always easy, but with the right attitude we can smile and laugh through it all, even if it has to be in between the tears.
Every mile I ride and every dollar I raise will help support more than two-dozen essential programs for more than 5,900 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.
