GIVING BACK TO OUR LIFELINE

Well it is time again…the Rock n Roll Las Vegas 10K November 13, 2016. Walking this is a personal challenge, but I’m not in this just for the glory. I’m walking for something important. I am walking to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. As you may know from my blog, www.mlsbks0422.blogspot.com, or from last year, Chai Lifeline is so important in our lives. From big brothers to big sisters, siblings events to Camp Simcha Special, Tuesday night dinners to extra meals, visits when needed to mom’s nights out. Those are just a few of the wonderful things this organization has done for us. After 4 years, of working hard, Chai Lifeline got a Baltimore office... many more good things have started happening because of this. I can’t wait to see what’s instore for the Mid-Atlantic Region. As Chai Lifeline does so much for us, the least I can do is the 10K and give back to them. However, I know I can’t do it alone. I need your help.Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline´s programs and activities change their lives forever, returning joy and hope and enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Its most famous program is Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special. Every year these two camps offer 450 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To get a better idea of what Chai Lifeline does for families, please watch the videos below. I know they will touch your heart the way they touched mine.Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and treatments, I can do this for them. 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.
Best - Marci
