BENEFITING: CAMP RISING SUN CHARITABLEFOUNDATION INC
Hi there! My name is Jay Mirecki, a rising sophomore at Tufts University. When I was three years old, I was diagnosed with a form of kidney cancer, Wilms tumor. I returned from vacation and entered surgery to have my kidney removed. Since then I’ve lived with one kidney. I never had the chance to play hockey or football. But for one week each summer, I was free. Camp Rising Sun is a place where kids with cancer have fun, and through elementary and middle school, that is exactly what it was for me. This summer I am marking sixteen years since my diagnosis with a 160 km bike ride through Connecticut on August 20th. I hope to raise $16,000 by August 20th to help Camp Rising Sun continue to provide a summer’s worth of fun to kids just like me.
