May years ago, as a young mom, I was lucky enough to be a volunteer driver for Chai Lifeline. With my infant in her car seat, about once a week, we'd take people home from a local hospital after treatment. What I initially thought would be scary and hard turned out to be the highlight of my week. The Chai Lifeline families were warm, funny, delightful people. They taught me so much about what really matters in life and would endlessly praise all of Chai Lifelines efforts in helping them overcome such very difficult times in their lives. I am forever grateful for the experience.

This is the reason I am so excited to take part in Tour de Simcha, the 65-mile cycling event this summer benefiting the children and families of Chai Lifeline.

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 $2,500, and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Any contribution to this important cause is so appreciated.

On behalf of the children of Chai Lifeline, thank you for your support.
Wishing your family abundant health and happiness always,
