Camp Sunshine is pleased to announce the 2013 A.J.’s New Jersey Polar Dip. We believe that together we can send many more children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to our one-of-a-kind retreat in Maine.
Any plunger raising $100, you will receive a highly-coveted, commemorative, long-sleeve “I DID IT” event shirt!
For those individuals not quite ready to take the full plunge, we do offer the "chicken dip"!
Who is A.J.? A.J. Cincotta-Eichenfield was literally born into Camp. It is his second home and he is as much a part of Camp Sunshine as the concrete in the floors. He is the son of Psychosocial Director, Nancy Cincotta, and Medical Director, Andrew Eichenfield. He has seen thousands of families with ill children come through the doors of Camp Sunshine and he has made many friends along the way. One day in late February, A.J. decided to do something for Camp. The plunge was perfect! He began asking family and friends to pledge to his plunge. Support for the most famous face at Camp Sunshine came snowballing in.
To date, A.J.'s New Jersey Polar Dip has raised $225,000 for Camp Sunshine! With the strength of an event such as A.J.’s New Jersey Polar Dip and the resources of Camp Sunshine, it is our goal to raise in excess of $75,000 in 2013. That is enough to send 35 New Jersey families to Camp Sunshine.
For 2013, A.J.’s New Jersey Polar Dip is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Camp Sunshine. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our participants, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference.
We've partnered with CrowdRise to encourage the entire community to unite and fundraise for Camp Sunshine. Just imagine the impact the entire community can have when harnessed to give back in a fun and compelling way!
