THE STORY:

Gwyn Lauber wrote -

I'm raising money to send 10 children to YMCA Camp Campbell, a summer camp in the Santa Cruz mountains, and am attempting to run the Big Sur International Marathon 21-miler (the full marathon was sold out) with my dad as my means to raise funds.  The URLs for the camp and the race are below.

Each year, the camp offers 320 campers scholarships so that they can attend camp. The camp gives the children an opportunity to discover their unlimited potential, explore the outdoors, and play amongst the giant coastal redwood trees while they experience the joyful traditions of overnight camp. They escape TV and iPads, and, instead, develop a love for nature and the outdoors, build character and an awareness of the environment.

In my youth, I went to camp and loved it. It taught me independence and self-reliance, and I looked forward to this very special adventure each year. I'm hoping to help other children have a similar experience.

Beyond the transaction fee for this website, all of the funds will go directly to Camp Campbell for camper scholarships.  Also, if you donate $250, you can have an engraved brick in the camp's Pathway to Success.
