BENEFITING: ROBERT L SWEENEY MEMORIAL FUND INC
On September 28, 2015 I will journey to Italy to walk 187 miles through the Tuscan region. I will then travel to England to participate in the Beachyt head Marathon.My goal is to raise awareness and money for two noteworthy causes!
My name is Diane Sweeney and I am the founder of Bob Sweeney’s Camp HOPE. The camp is a free bereavement program for children and their caregivers in the Long Island area. The camp started in 2003 in memory of my husband who passed away from pancreatic cancer. My children were 5, 7 and 9 at the time of his death. In the past 13 years, the charity has helped over 1,000 families on Long Island who have lost a loved one.
Convoy of Hope is an international relief organization based in Springfield Missouri. Since 1994 they have helped more than 65 million people in the US and abroad. One of the charities programs, Hands and Hearts, focuses on women's Empowerment in the Ethiopian region, helping woman learn a skill and bringing them out of poverty and prostitution.
I will handle all my expenses and 100 percent of donations received will go directly to the charities. Money raised will be divided unless noted by donor.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT
