In less than 2 weeks, I'll be joining forces with a group of amazing women to ride and raise money to help families dealing with pediatric cancer and other life-altering diseases. This will be my 9th year.

As many of you know, I began this trek in 2014 as Daniel, then 11, was undergoing treatment for cancer. Hard to imagine those days as I look up to my 6’1” 195-pound strapping young man who will be a college freshman this fall.

I’m overflowing with pride as I reflect back on his years growing up, going through treatment, and who he has become. Daniel is an interesting combination — sensitive, thoughtful, kind, caring, deep, mature, funny, and resilient. He’s a wrestler/fitness expert and an amazing artist. He’s extremely focused and driven towards whatever he sets his heart on.

When we learned of Daniel’s diagnosis in 2013, we never could have imagined where we’d be today. The friendship, love, and incredible support from staff and volunteers at Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha no doubt played a critical role in helping us and Daniel during his 2+ years of treatments. Their incredible support for countless families and more than 5,900 children is what inspires me to continue riding.

We will be forever indebted to this wonderful organization and the incredibly holy work they do.

I'll be riding in memory of Chani Rubin would have turned 34 this summer. She was like a daughter to me and sister to the boys — we miss her vivacious personality and having her in our daily lives. I'll also be riding for the families who are in the midst of the battle. Watching your child - no matter what age - go through treatment is heartbreaking and scary.

On July 19th, we will ride a 65-mile route into Camp Simcha. I hope you’ll join me in partnership once again in this important mission.

On behalf of the children of Chai Lifeline, thank you for your support.

With heartfelt appreciation,

Leslie

P.S. My goal is to raise $5,000, and I hope you will help me! All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
