On Sunday February 28th, I will be running Jump4Chai for the children of Chai lifeline along with many other teens. This 'children helping children' event is special in that the fundraisers choose where they will contribute their money.
When a child is born or diagnosed with a serious illness, the entire family is affected. Families can be torn apart as one parent moves into the hospital to be with the sick child. Siblings, already worried about a brother, sister or parents health, suffer greatly when their daily routines are disrupted. Unlike other organizations, Chai Lifeline provides help to both the person suffering through an illness and the family that is often overlooked. They offer whatever is needed, bringing light, laughter and happiness into the darkest of times.
I am passionate about raising awareness and funds for Chai Lifeline Canada as this organization does incredible work, providing support to children and familes battling serious illnesses. In helping me reach my fundraising goals you're also helping to support the Chai Warriors and their families.
At Chai Lifeline Canada we are passionately devoted to alleviating the burden of those facing medical challenges. From the moment of diagnosis, through the arduous months and years, in good times and bad, Canadian families have discovered that Chai Lifeline Canada is a friend for life.
