I have had the privilege of volunteering at Hole in the Wall Gang Camp (HITWG) since 2012. This special place provides a life changing summer camp experience for children dealing with cancer, sickle cell anemia, HIV and other challenging diseases.
HITWG Camp allows these children to fish, play sports, swim, climb walls, ride horses and enjoy many other fun activities. The camp is also equipped with incredible medical facilities. This allows the children to receive their daily treatments and then get back to having fun. Most importantly, HITWG Camp allows kids to meet others their age that are going through the same thing.
I had cancer as a child. I can still remember the fear of being in a hospital, having to undergo operations and being sick from chemotherapy. I wish there was a place where I grew up that allowed me to connect with other children going through the same obstacles. The inclusive atmosphere at HITWG Camp helps children and their families to feel positive.
I am running 26.2 miles in The New York City Marathon this November to support Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. I have a goal to raise $3,000. 100% of your donation will go to Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which keeps this special place completely free of charge for 30,000 children annually.
I am extremely grateful to be running the NYC Marathon to support HITWG Camp. Thank you so much for your support!
