BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT DATE: Sep 06, 2014
For the past 10 years I have raised over $25,000 benefitting the Lance Armstrong Foundation/LiveStrong Challenge. This year I have decided to raise monies for a local organization, The Hole in the Wall Gang.
In 1988, Paul Newman opened The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut so that children coping with serious illnesses could have a special hideout where they could simply be kids. The Camp, which served 288 campers its first year, has 25,000 children and family members now experiencing “a different kind of healing” annually. Each year, 2,500 are served onsite and 20,000 visits by the Hospital Outreach Program bring the fun and friendship of Camp into more than 25 sites throughout the Northeast – all free of charge.
I'm sure you're all familiar with my love for cycling and my previous connections to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. This year I'm focusing my efforts locally with The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp based in Ashford, CT. I hope you will consider making a donation to my account to help support this noble and worthwhile cause.
