Thanks so much for visiting my page!
My name is Kelsey Pandiani and I am participating in the Kayak-a-thon for the second year in a row to raise money for the Arthur C. Luf Children's Burn Camp. As a burn survivor I was a camper there from ages 8-18 and now I work as a counselor every summer.
Burn Camp is a place where children with life changing burn injuries can come and enjoy a full week surrounded by others just like them. The many activities such as archery, swimming, arts & crafts, team building, and the ropes course help these kids build their self confidence by showing them that despite their injuries they can succeed in any challenge they face. As a kid, Burn Camp was the only place that I was free from stares of strangers, uncomfortable questions, and crushing insecurities. It is a safe environment necessary for a young burn survivors recovery, and I would not be the same person I am today without it.
The camp is run by volunteers who donate a week of their life to support these children. By raising money to help make this week possible we are all helping young burn survivors come to terms with their injuries as well as putting them on a path to a healthier, happier, life.
Thank you for for your support!
