I am running the NYC Marathon this year with a heavy heart. This year I will be honoring a good friend, Jordan Bergman. Jordan passed away this year in a tragic accident. He was a devoted and loving husband to Shoshana and an amazing father to Jack and Sally. Jordan was a special person. His honestly and kindness were boundless and he will truly be missed.
I would like to honor his memory by running to raise money for Camp Simcha. Camp Simcha is an overnight camp for seriously ill children. Every summer, Camp Simcha sponsors 430 sick children to attend a medically supervised overnight camp experience. The program is a mixture of traditional camp activities and special events. Camp Simcha is offered expense free to the families of these children.
Jordan was a great athlete and he had the most funny and heartwarming memories of his years at overnight summer camp. He made lasting friendships at camp and looked forward to the day that his kids would be old enough to share in that amazing experience that he loved so much. He had a special place in his heart for children, especially his own, and took such pleasure from watching them enjoy themselves. This is why i will be running for Camp Simcha.
Please help me honor Jordan by donating money to this wonderful charity.
