You may already know that I’m training to run the Jerusalem Marathon this march..but you probably don't because I only decided to run a couple of minutes ago. The reason is because I'm Running to support my neice ,atara, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Since she has been diagnosed her positivity and emuna has inspired me so much. I feel that as her aunt I want to show her how proud I am and how inspired I am by her. This will be a huge challenge that I am ready to take on to support her and chai life line. So, I am running to raise money for Chaiyanu/Chai Lifeline Israel, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. I heard about this and I had to do something. However, I know I can’t do it alone. I need your help.

Chaiyanu is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 400 children and their families every year. Chaiyanu´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, the Hope Tour. Every year these two programs offer 100 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To get a better idea of what Chaiyanu 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 Chaiyanu can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and treatment, 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 - Sarah
