BENEFITING: FAMILY MATTERS OF GREATER WASHINGTON INC
EVENT: 5K Walk for Camp
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2016
SEND A KID TO CAMP! Since 1966, with the support of our partners and generous Send a Kid to Camp donors, Family Matters of Greater Washington has afforded over 30,000 children and youth the opportunity to attend camp – many whom would not have had the opportunity to do so. Camp Moss Hollow is more than a summer camp. It is a youth development program designed to enhance educational aptitudes, expand horizons and encourage independence and self-confidence, in the lives of those we serve. At Camp Moss Hollow, we give kids the tools and motivation needed to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty and increase the likelihood of obtaining a high school diploma and move forward to post-secondary education. Camp Moss Hollow is a haven and respite from the chaotic and negative influences often found in the inner city. At Camp Moss Hollow, we are building the lives of our future leaders, naturally - through empowerment, enrichment and engagement. We need your help to change and transform the lives of those who hold the future in their hands. In honor of our 50th year we are celebrating with our 1st Annual 5K Walk for Camp! This 5K Walk (3.1 miles) that takes you on a peaceful and scenic route around the Anacostia River Trail in the beautifully restored Anacostia Park will feature food, fun and festivities for the whole family!
