THE STORY:

Kate Carpenter wrote -


In just 3 months, we will run 200 consecutive miles from Hull to Provincetown, MA, which should take us just shy of 30 hours. We are raising funds for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, the place Kate has volunteered her time and donated her love to for the past 10 years!! We hope to bring a lot of love and laughter to some sweet children less fortunate than us. 
   
Paul Newman started The Hole in the Wall Camp back in 1988 as a safe haven for kids with chronic and life threatening illnesses like sickle cell anemia, cancer, hemophilia, and HIV/AIDS. He named camp after his star role as Butch in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, where he and Robert Redford were cowboys who robbed trains, "raised a little hell," and ultimately hid away in a safe-haven canyon in Wyoming they called, "the hole in the wall." And so the idea of camp was born. It started out as one magical place, nestled in the hills of eastern Connecticut, but in the last 25+ years the organization has grown to include 14+ camps and affiliated organizations all over the world. Through summer sessions, camper reunions, and family weekend programs at the Camp, and year-round outreach to hospitals and clinical sites throughout the Northeast, Camp servers more than 20,000 children annually. Each summer, more than 1,000 children between the ages of seven and 15 attend Camp's signature summer program where they enjoy fishing, boating, swimming, horseback riding, archery, crafts and more. All services are free of charge. 
Because words don't do Camp justice, here is a little video to give you a glimpse of the magic found here:

Our Goal: to raise a lot of money so that children with chronic illnesses can continue to raise a little hell for years to come! 

We are trying to raise at least $6,000, enough to send 2+ children to camp this summer! The gift of Campership underwrites the expenses associated with providing an outstanding week long summer session to a seriously ill child. Those funds cover the cost of medical care of the highest quality, 'round-the-clock supervision, activities, meals and everything needed to make Camp a magical and unforgettable experience in the life of an ill child.  
     
So as we bundle and face this frigid weather for our training runs, we ask for your help! Please consider using the link below to make a contribution. We appreciate your generosity in advance.
