As my Bar Mitzvah date gets closer, I realize just how much I have to be thankful for. I am blessed to have an amazing family, good health and a life filled with joy and opportunity. I also understand that not everyone is as fortunate as I am. A few years ago I was deeply affected by the realization that there are kids who are very ill and have to undergo months or years of treatment. Having their families with them during these treatments is not always possible. It is not only a big financial burden, but may also be impossible because their families have to travel from very far away to be with their children through their treatment. The Ronald McDonald House Baltimore provides free housing and food to families while their children are going through treatment in Baltimore hospitals. After learning that, I wanted to do all I can to make sure that as many kids as possible can have their families by their side when they are sick and need treatment.
On September 30, 2018, with my dad Alex and my big brother Ethan by my side, I will be running the Baltimore Triathlon to raise money for The Ronald McDonald House. Please support me in my efforts to help these kids have their families by their side. My parents have committed to contribute ALL the processing fees, so 100% of your donations will go directly to The Ronald McDonald House Baltimore. All donations are tax-deductible.
Here is the link to a segment that ran on WBAL about The Ronald McDonald House-Baltimore, please take a few minutes to watch and make a contribution. Thank you!!!
