BENEFITING: CAMP RISING SUN CHARITABLEFOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013
Todd and I have decided to take the plung and run our first ever half marathon!! In making this decision we noticed that there was an option to run for a charity. Together we chose Camp Rising Sun. The reason we were influenced towards this amazing charity is very personal. My little cousin Erica was diagnosed with cancer when she was only weeks old. For months her tiny body fought back while her family grappled with the situation. Our entire family was devastated and could only hope for the best possible outcome. Being the little firecracker that she is, Erica overcame. She is now a very healthy 9 year old, offically in remission for 8 years. Erica has attended Camp Rising Sun for a number of years and the joy it brings her is indescribable . Camp Rising Sun is dedicated to giving children who are either currently battling or who have battled cancer, a week long escape. The camp's goal is to eventually have all their children attend free. For now, the cost is kept to minimum through donations.
That is a background of our cause and our story. If you are able and wish to, you may donate to Camp Rising Sun via this page.
Thank you so much for your support
