I just want to take a moment and tell everyone THANK YOU so much!!! Raising over $5000 was incredible and such a beautiful gift to give such See More

THE STORY:

Two years ago Matt completed a 13 mile swim across Lake Sebago in Maine for the first "SEALS for Sunshine" event. He, along with three of his team mates, successfully raised over $250,000 to help support Camp Sunshine families. Camp Sunshine is a volunteer based organization that provides week long sessions for families that have children with life-threatening illnesses. It is the ONLY organization that provides support to the entire family, rather than just the child. This is integral to helping the family heal together. Not only does Camp Sunshine provide a positive family platform, but they also provide these weeks to the families for FREE. This means the families are sponsored by individuals, companies, etc. etc. Last year Matt couldn't participate in SEALS for sunshine event, but this year he is able to attend and we will be at Camp sunshine for the 4th of July week! This years event will play out as follows: bike 25 miles, run 7 miles, swim 2.2 miles, and canoe 4 miles, all around Lake Sebago. Each SEAL will be a leader of a volunteer group of about 10 participants, and all teams will start and finish together ~ "no man left behind". Matt and I fully support this organization, and are in awe of the people that continue to make it what it is. They have such love for these children and their families and it is truly inspirational to be apart of their community. We don't just attend the "SEALs for Sunshine" event, rather we are integrated into their weekly routine. We have the ability to attend their classes, activities, and share breakfast, lunch, and dinner with them. I can not put into words the emotions we feel when these kids are so excited to be able to hang out with real-life heroes not for an hour, not for a day, but for an entire week. As grateful as these families are for the guys to participate in this event, Matt and I are even more grateful to be in a position to give back to such a wonderful community. Thank you so much for supporting Matt, and Camp Sunshine, and better yet, making a difference in a family's life. For more information on Camp Sunshine please visit their website campsunshine.org
