THE STORY:

Camp Casey is a has been close to my heart long before I was able to visit. It is a non-profit horseback riding and outreach program for children with cancer and their families. My college roommate helps run the Michigan camp and is in charge of their public relations so I was always aware of their story and the great work they did with children. In June of 2008, I was fortunate enough to volunteer at one of the Saturday camps and it was truly incredible. The camp runs several fun activities throughout the day in addition to horseback riding.

It was just wonderful seeing these children sitting tall on a horse with a huge grin ear to ear. Being able to overcome their fears of such a large animal and control it gives the children confidence that can extend to how they approach their treatment. The joy on the faces of the children and their families is something I will never forget and I want to help them continue. I’m so excited to know that my running the marathon will make a difference in the lives of young children.

Some of their programs include Cowboy Camp Outs, Horsey House Calls and Outlaw Outings. Cowboy Camp Outs provide horse-themed mini-vacations to families with a child battling cancer. The entire family is invited to attend, so no one feels left out! Horsey House Calls bring Moe, the Camp Casey Horse, to the home of children too sick to attend a Camp Out. Outlaw Outings offer family-fun activities, like trips to professional sports games, without the hassle and expense of planning. This program also allows Camp Casey to stay in touch with families after they have been served by Camp Casey’s primary programs.

I’d like to note that I have been very scared of horses after a few childhood incidents but the horses and staff at Camp Casey are so kind and gentle that they even got me on a horse. My parents would say that alone is a miracle.
