Hello! My name is Holden Cookson, I am the president of the ultimate disc club at the University of Maine at Farmington. This previous summer I biked across the country to raise money for young adults and families affected by cancer. This summer, collectively, my team raised over $300,000. What I am raising money for now is different but just as meaningful. Fight the Night is an event to raise money for Camp Sunshine in Casco Bay, Maine where children with life threatening illnesses and their family go for support and an amazing experience. Below is a description from Camp Sunshine's website for further explanation.
"Camp Sunshine’s mission is to provide respite and support to each family member - children, siblings, and parents. Since its inception, Camp Sunshine has offered comfort, hope, and support to over 43,500 individuals from 48 states and 23 countries. Camp Sunshine is currently the only full-time facility in the nation whose sole purpose is to provide respite for the whole family.
The families who come to Camp Sunshine have children diagnosed with cancer, hematologic conditions, renal disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, and who have undergone solid organ transplantation. They attend illness-specific sessions of varying lengths where they have the opportunity to solidify and renew their relationships while meeting others facing similar challenges. Bereavement programming is also provided for families who have lost a child to the illnesses served at Camp."
