BENEFITING: HEART CONNECTION

EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2016

Charles Fisher

THE STORY:

Camp Heart Connection, a program of Children's Cancer Connection (CCC) based in Iowa, is a wonderful program supporting families with children diagnosed with cancer. Every summer, children from the age of 5-18 are invited to attend a camp specifically for them; one, Oncology Camp, for the children who are currently fighting cancer, and the other, Sibling Camp, for their siblings who's lives are also turned upside down. Those two weeks are so amazing for the kids because it is the one place where EVERYONE is able to understand their "new normal" of life affected by cancer - they can't get this support from school, sports, or anywhere else. Camp is the place where nobody stares, and everyone cares.

For four summers, I have been privileged to be a camp counselor for fantastic groups of Oncology campers. I love Camp, and all the family that comes with it!! The best thing about Camp Heart Connection is that CCC doesn't ask for any funds from the families to attend; but this places a heavy burden on supporters of CCC to be able to raise money needed to support this wonderful annual event. It costs nearly $400 per camper for a week of camp - so for nearly 200 children who attend just one of the week-long camps, that's a lot of money!

And that's where you - my family, friends, and colleagues - can help! My goal is to raise enough funds to support an entire cabin at Camp Heart Connection. That's a $3500 goal!! An ambitious goal, but something I think we can all get behind.

So, in order to make this more fun, I will be growing a beard in September as a part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. For 30 days, the beard will grow and grow and get redder and redder (because I'm a Viking, after all). On October 1, the person or group who donates the most money will get to choose which way I will style my beard for the next week. It could be a fu manchu, a goatee, mutton chops, chin-strap, neck beard, or just a plain old mustache - he/she/they get to decide!!

To make it EVEN MORE FUN, I will be sending out images of me growing the beard all month on my Facebook page and introducing you all to special people I've met through Camp Heart Connection.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page - please help me give back to this fantastic organization. If you would like more information on Children's Cancer Connection, check out their website and Facebook page below:
