BENEFITING: CAMP RISING SUN CHARITABLEFOUNDATION INC
Hi everyone! I am running the Hartford Marathon on Oct 13 in memory of my Dad, Walter Pinches Jr. This year I am running for Camp Rising Sun, a camp for children with cancer. Please consider donating to this great cause! A thousand thank yous!!!! xoxo
Camp Rising Sun is a camp for children who have been diagnosed with, or currently undergoing treatment for, cancer. Children ages 5 - 17 attend camp free of charge; it is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and funded by donations both private and public. Camp is staffed by volunteer counselors who give a week of their time, love and energy. We have a pediatric oncologist and three nurses on campus 24-hours a day to tend to medical needs. Camp Rising Sun started with 8 children in its first year and has grown to over 120 campers; 2012 will mark Camp Rising Sun's 29th year. Camp Rising Sun is a place where kids with cancer have fun!
