I decided to take the plunge and run my first marathon! I will be running in the 2014 Hartford Marathon on October 11th. Running a marathon has been one of my life goals, and I am looking forward to the challenge. To make the journey more rewarding, I am running to support a great cause - Camp Rising Sun.
Camp Rising Sun, located in Connecticut, is a camp for children who have been diagnosed with or are currently undergoing treatment for cancer. Children ages 5 - 17 attend camp free of charge. It is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and funded by donations both private and public. Camp is staffed by volunteer counselors who give a week of their time, love and energy. There is a pediatric oncologist and four nurses on campus 24-hours a day to tend to medical needs. Camp Rising Sun started with 8 children in its first year and has grown to over 120 campers; 2014 will mark Camp Rising Sun's 31st year.
Please help support my fundraising efforts for the 2014 Hartford Marathon!! Thank you!
