Join the 3nd annual Bike4Chai 2 day cycling tour that will change your life -- and the lives of over 400 very sick children!
Starting from the Jersey Shore and ending in Glen Spey, NY, with a triumphant entrance into Camp Simcha, Chai Lifeline's medically supervised overnight camp for seriously ill children.
Join together with our elite group of riders from last year as we make this year's event the greatest one ever!
LAST YEAR - On August 3-4, 40 Bike4Chai cyclists rode 135 miles from Lakewood & Deal, NJ to Camp Simcha, an overnight camp for children with cancer and other chronic illnesses, located in Glen Spey, NY. The bikers raised more than $500,000 to benefit the campers. The ride culminated with a triumphant entrance into Camp Simcha Special where the campers performed a spectacular choreographed wheelchair dance to welcome the riders.
Each summer, 400 seriously ill children are treated to unforgettable, medically supervised overnight camp experiences at Camp Simcha, for children battling cancer and other hematological illnesses, and Camp Simcha Special, for children with debilitating chronic conditions.
At Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special, children and teens trade hospital rooms and doctors' offices for fun, friendship, and hope for the future. Campers enjoy traditional camp activities in fully handicapped-accessible facilities. Talent shows, concerts, and helicopter, hot-air, and motorcycle rides make every day super-special.
Campers return home reinvigorated, with deep friendships and happy memories to help them travel the rough road ahead.
Camp Simcha is a project of Chai Lifeline.
