BENEFITING: MOUNTAINEER SPINA BIFIDA CAMP INC

EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

THE STORY:

Mountaineer Spina Bifida Camp, Inc. was established in 1985. The mission is
to help children and teens to develop self-esteem, social skills, and self reliance
while they participate in recreational and social activities. All funding for
Mountaineer Camp comes from donations, grants, and fund-raising.

I am asking for your assistance in raising funds to continue providing children
the wonderful opportunity the camp provides. Your donation will be used to
directly benefit the Mountaineer Spina Bifida Camp.

If there is one important concept I can give to describe what makes camp so
great it is this: For 51 weeks out of the year children with Spina Bifida feel like
they are outside the norm—but for the other wonderful week they are the norm!

Facts about Mountaineer Spina Bifida Camp:

Camp originated over 20 years ago from the idea of doctors that treated children with spina bifida in the state of West Virginia. They felt that there should be a place where these children could go to meet with their peers and not feel out-of-place, or be made fun of. From this idea Mountaineer Spina Bifida Camp was born and is held each year at Cedar Lakes in Ripley, WV. Children that have spina bifida from all over the state may attend and are able to swim, play wheelchair hockey and baseball, make crafts, have campfires and they even have a prom where the campers get dressed for the evening and dance. Camp is run solely on monies from companies and private donations. The campers are charged a small fee and that is on a sliding scale according to what the family is able to pay. Insurance is the biggest expense. With supplies, food and insurance, the total expense per camper is about $1,000.
