EVENT DATE: Jun 22, 2014
Josh was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in January 2010, and Sarah was his caregiver. Cancer has affected our lives and changed our lives profoundly. We are hoping to "pay forward" all the goodwill that was extended to us during my illness.
Marathoners, both of us, we are hoping to run for kids affected by cancer during the 550 marathon. Please consider supporting us with a donation.
Camp Kesem recognizes and embraces the often-overlooked population of children affected by a parent’s cancer and empowers college student leaders nationwide to create free, life-changing summer camps for these children.
Since 2000, Camp Kesem has given children affected by a parent’s cancer the opportunity to just be kids. The ever-expanding Kesem community engages in camp activities like sports, arts and crafts, and drama to give campers a fun-filled week. Campers also participate in “Cabin Chats” with fellow campers and counselors, giving children the chance to share their experiences with each other. There are plenty of laughs and lots of emotional support, but Camp Kesem does not provide therapy. The tremendous fun and support campers experience is what makes Camp Kesem a transformative, magical week for campers and counselors alike.
