THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my Missoula Marathon page!

I'm not much of a runner, but I now have a reason to push myself more than ever before. I am training for, and running, the Missoula Half Marathon on behalf of Camp Mak-A-Dream.

For those of you who don't know, Camp Mak-A-Dream is a cost-free, medically supervised camp for children, young adults, and families affected by cancer. And, it has impacted my life more than I could have ever imagined. I spent one week as a volunteer at Camp the summer after I graduated high school. For that week I was able to witness kids from all over the country coming together and accepting each other for who they are.

After that first week, I was hooked and I spent the following four summers as a core staff member - first, as the Games and Events Coordinator, and then as the Activities Director. This past August I won the lottery and was invited to join the year-round Foundation Staff as the Program Manager. Not many people can say they found their dream job right out of high school, but not many people have expericenced a place like Camp Mak-A-Dream.

We are able to continue providing a place for cancer survivors and family members to come together and experience the feeling of just being a KID, rather than "the kid with cancer", because of people like you. No matter the size, every bit counts!

While you're here, please take eight minutes to watch our Camp video - I promise you won't be disappointed! You'll get a glimpse at the world I wouldn't trade for anything.

I truly appreciate your support and your time to learn more about Camp Mak-A-Dream. I'll leave you with my favorite quote from one of our teen brain tumor survivors: "I had been told there's no such thing as magic. But I'm going home tomorrow and telling my doctor he was wrong - I just experienced it, right here, with all of you."

 

Love,

Meredith
