BENEFITING: CAMP SUNSHINE AT SEBAGO LAKE
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I'm thrilled to be joining in the fundraising efforts of the 2012 ING New York City marathon by linking up with Crowdrise to benefit Camp Sunshine!
Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses and their families located on the shore of Sebago Lake in Casco, Maine. Camp Sunshine provides 24-hour medical and psychosocial support to the families who visit. Their services, which include accomodations, meals, recreational activities, and counseling services are provided to visiting families free of charge.
I had the pleasure of volunteering at Camp Sunshine where I was touched by the experience of the families and children visiting as well as by the tireless compassion and enthusiasm of the staff which is comprised almost entirely of volunteers.
I was so impressed with the efficiency and compassion of this organization that I will be running 26.2 miles for Camp Sunshine on November 4, 2012. I would love for you to cheer me on by helping to raise enough money to send at least one family to this wonderful place.
