Family & Friends,
I’m running the New York City Marathons 26.2 miles of New York’s 5 Boroughs this November. I’m looking forward in helping raise for a charity that does some truly fantastic work. The Hole in the Wall Gang is a charity whose aim is to give seriously sick children the opportunity to experience summer camp.
Below is a snippet from their website http://www.holeinthewallgang.org that summarises what this wonderful bunch of people do more eloquently than I ever could:
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families throughout the Northeast, free of charge. It’s a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood where every kid can “raise a little hell.” The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was founded in 1988 by Paul Newman with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp.
