Supporting Team Sean and Chai Lifeline!

Thank you for Supporting Team Lifeline!

Team Sean - Talia Michaeli, Adi Michaeli, Yisrael Rouemy

You may already know that we're training to run the Miami half Marathon On Sunday, January 29, 2017 as Team Sean with Team Lifeline. Running a half marathon is a personal challenge, but we're not in this just for the glory. We're running in honor of Sean Michaeli a cancer survivor. Three years ago we heard the word that no mother should ever hear, your son 13 years old has cancer! Thanks to Doctors, Community and Chai Lifeline, Sean is Cancer Free! We are running as a team, to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. 
Now it's time to give back! However, we know we can’t do it alone. We need your help.

Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline´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 camp, Camp Simcha Special. Every year these two camps offer 450 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To get a better idea of what Chai Lifeline does for families, please watch the videos below. We know they will touch your heart the way they touched ours. 

Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and treatments, we can do this for them. But we can't do this without your support. 
Today, We ask for your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids, and we plan to raise $35,000 and more until December 15, 2016. So please, push the donate button and help us put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true. Go Team Sean Go!!!

Thank you for supporting Team Sean.
All the best,
