In just a few days, I will bike 180 miles through 3 states to Camp Simcha, an extraordinary overnight camp that gives children with cancer a vacation from sickness that restores their spirits and renews their determination to fight!
Having participated in Bike4Chai twice before, I have seen first-hand what Camp Simcha does and how contributing to its success enhances the lives of terminally ill children.
The ride won't be easy, but neither is life for a child with cancer or other serious illness. Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special, are Chai Lifeline's flagship programs. Every year these two camps offer 420 children a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again (to learn more about the camps, visit www.campsimcha.org).
I will be biking to camp on Wednesday and Thursday, August 5th and 6th. My objective is to raise at least $5,000 by then and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Thank you for supporting me and in doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment, and aftermath of serious pediatric illness.
