BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: Team HITW NYC Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Greetings family, friends and fellow runners. This year I will be running my 7th NYC Marathon and fundraising $3,000 for Paul Newman’s Team Hole in the Wall in honor of my friend Taber McFarlin, cancer survivor, past Hole in the Wall camper, Junior Counselor and now college sophomore. Taber was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 at age 11 and attended camp starting at age 12. He traveled to Ireland with Hole in the Wall Gang and eventually went on to become a Junior Counselor. The Hole in the Wall camp experience helped Taber through tough times by meeting kids his age with similar problems and along the way a chance to “raise a little hell” with fellow Hole in the Wall Gang campers. Taber is now entering his sophomore year at Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey studying Computer Science. Thank you in advance for contributing to this truly wonderful organization.
Your support will help provide "a different kind of healing" to more than 25,000 seriously ill children and family members throughout the Northeast - all completely free of charge!
