Jump for a cure
On July 11, the Seattle Kollel’s Camp SEED will hold a Chai-a-thon — a walk- or jump-a-thon — to benefit Chai Lifeline’s Camp Simcha, which provides an overnight camp experience for children fighting cancer and hematological diseases. Each summer, Camp Simcha hosts 400 children, giving them a traditional camp experience with handicapped-accessible facilities. Given the expense of treatment, the camp is free. Children participating in the Chai-a-thon raise money through their sponsors according to how many jumps they do, and prizes will be awarded according to the funds they raise at a ceremony at the end of the summer. For more information or to participate, contact Shaindel Bressler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
