EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
Hello friends! 2016 marked my 10th year of being a part of this AMAZING organization! It's been a few years since I ran the Hartford 5k, and with the recent surprise of my dad's heart disease (found through testing for his prostate cancer), there is no better motivator to get back to running! It's a win-win. My heart get's healthy & my campers experience another year at Camp Rising Sun!
Today is September 18 and the Hartford 5k is October 8. That gives me 20 days to get myself running 3.1 miles again and it gives you all 20 days to help me raise $500 for my campers! xo
Providing our campers with a week at sleepaway camp gives them an opportunity to experience what other kids would experience, but with the support of an oncologist and nursing staff caring for their daily needs. Our staff comes back year after year, volunteering their time to make it all possible. Your donations keep camp free to these children and their families. Please consider making a donation. No donation is too small. Many thanks! xo
