BENEFITING: HAPPINESS IS CAMPING INC
ORGANIZER: HAPPINESS IS CAMPING INC
I am a practicing primary care pediatrician for 17 years and have been taking care of some children stricken with cancer doing my role of addressing their acute care and coordinating their needs and treatment. On a personal side, I am an avid marathon runner and for the past 5 years I have completed 22 full marathons, including the last 4 NYC Marathons. To give more meaning to this deep passion for health and fitness, I am dedicating this marathon by raising funds to support HAPPINESS IS CAMPING, a camp for kids with Cancer and an official charity organization for the 2017 NYC Marathon. I share the organization's ideals of bringing to children suffering from cancer, the opportunity to experience the wonders and adventures of outdoor life. To enable them to participate in camping activities can bring simple joy that would be much remembered in time. For me, it would seal my commitment to these children's health and welfare through my love of running. Please join me in this fund raising.
