BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT DATE: Jun 22, 2014
EVENT DATE: JUNE 22, 2014
For the second year in a row, I will be participating in the Fairfield Half Marathon - but this year I have decided to team up with hundreds of other runners as part of "Team Hole in the Wall" to support a great cause!
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, located in Ashford, CT, was founded in 1988 by Paul Newman to serve as a special place for children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses to go where they could simply be kids. The Camp, which served 288 campers its first year, now serves more than 20,000 children and family members annually by providing a “different kind of healing,” completely free of charge. Each year, 2,500 are served onsite and 19,000 visits by the Hospital Outreach Program bring the fun and friendship of Camp into more than 20 sites throughout the Northeast – all free of charge.
As part of "Team Whole in the Wall" I have pledged to raise a minimum of $500 to support this great cause. Please consider showing your support with a donation - even the smallest amount will help me reach my goal!
