It is such a privilege for the 4th time to ride in Tour de Simcha. Unfortunately, as you know, I will be riding with tears in my eyes. My beautiful Mother passed away after her courageous fight. I no longer ride in honor of my Mother's strength to battle Metastatic Cancer. Instead I ride to honor her memory and to elevate her soul in Heaven. I know that all of the charity buoyed my Mother's spirits and I truly believe that the merit of all of the charity that was raised gave her extra days to share with her children and grandchildren.

Not only does every mile I ride and every dollar we raise together honor the memory of my Mother, Rachel bas Yehoshua. it also enables Chai Lifeline to give many children the experience of a lifetime in Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special (

My husband Shlomo has been volunteering as a Paramedic in Camp Simcha Special for many years. My family and I have had the opportunity to spend the last 14 summers witnessing the miracle that is Camp Simcha. We see children who are all year long identified by their illness, in camp only being identified by their smile and laughter. There is no way I can describe in words the magic that is Camp Simcha.

I will be biking 100 miles to camp on July 16, 2019. My objective is to raise $100,000 by then, and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Please contribute by clicking on the donate button now.

Thank you so much for your support.

You support my Mother's memory

You support the children of Chai Lifeline.

Thank you again,
Deborah Katz
