BENEFITING: The Painted Turtle
EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2011
The Painted Turtle provides a life-changing experience to children whose daily struggles often diminish both their desire to be well and their ability to lead a rich, productive life. Of the more than one million children in CA with chronic illnesses or mental/physical limitations, there are over 17,500 who are unable to attend summer camp due to their medical needs. The Painted Turtle provides these children and their families with an empowering, renewing experience completely free of charge. The Painted Turtle gives these children the gift of a lifetime, a gift of laughter, fun, friendship and personal growth that they would otherwise not be able to experience.
"I am a player in Region 67 and also a Painted Turtle camper. I think people should donate money to The Painted Turtle because it can benefit kids like me with health issues. There are so many fun activities to do over the weekend of camp. These pictures are of me going canoeing, zip-lining, doing archery and having so much fun! Please consider donating so more children with medical problems can attend. It truly is a life changing experience" - Jayna Contreras
