For my Bar Mitzvah project I've decided to volunteer and raise money at Friends of Karen. Friends of Karen is a great organization which provides vital and comprehensive support, at no cost, to families in the New York tri-state region who are caring for a child battling cancer. Through Friends of Karen I learned of a local basketball event that I'll be participating in and raising money for this great organization. The Basketball Challenge is a layup competition in which you are given two minutes to make as many baskets as you can. I've organized a team of my friends and family to participate in this fun and meaningful event.
I chose to help kids with cancer because I can't imagine what it's like to know that your life might end at such a young age. This has been something that I have wanted to help out with for many years because I can't imagine being in their shoes. It's a thing children should not have to worry about, they should just be able to enjoy life to its fullest which is why I chose to do this. Please help me to make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.
Thank you so much for your generous support,
