Off the beaten path in northeastern Connecticut is a dirt road framed by dense woods and accessed by a passageway through rough-hewn boulders reminiscent of a Wild West hideaway. That special place is The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, founded by Paul Newman, which has been serving seriously-ill children and those with life-threatening illnesses for more than twenty years.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is run just like any other summer camp with activities ranging from swimming, ropes courses, sports, arts and crafts, to music and nature. You wouldn't know it by design but it is also a state-of-the art medical facility, staffed with nurses, doctors and specialists to administer meds, provide chemotherapy treatments, and fix up the every day scrapes and bruises. Each camper gets individual counselors so that they have constant one-on-one attention all week. The satisfaction and joy these counselors get out of working with these children was truly amazing and moved me... and vice versa.
One of my 2014 goals is to raise money for this fantastic organization. Please help me with this worthy cause. Paul
