BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT DATE: Jun 22, 2014
Welcome to my funraising page!
I am running the Fairfield Half Marathon this summer for Team Hole in the Wall!
For those of you unfamiliar with Team Hole in the Wall - this is a great charity that helps provide "a different kind of healing" to more than 20,000 children and families battling serious illness each year, completely free of charge.
Each child they work with has the opportunity to go up to the 344-acre facility in Ashford, Connecticut, where the camp is held. Camp’s signature summer program consists of eight, weeklong sessions for seriously ill children aged 7-15, and one session for their siblings.
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.
I ran the 2013 New York City Half Marathon for Team Hole in the Wall and hope to help raise more funds for this great cause with the Fairfield Half!
