BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: Team HITW NYC Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I still have great friends and fond memories of adventure from the five years I left the nest of my parent's home to attend sleep away summer camp during the summer. I was very, very lucky to be able to do that so this cause really resonated with me.
I wrote a longer post on my blog about why I'm participating this year and why I am running to raise money to give a seriously ill child a chance to go to summer camp.

Here is more info on The Hole in the Wall Gang:
They're an amazing origanization. Unlike some charities, they are highly open about their financials and publish information about their low operating expenses and that almost 90% of all donations go directly to helping seriously ill children.
Your support will help provide "a different kind of healing" to more than 25,000 seriously ill children and family members throughout the Northeast.
HELPS DESERVING CHILDREN:
The fundraising goal is enough to send one child in need to Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Summer Camp this summer. This camp was designed to help seriously ill children. The attendees sponsored by your generosity have been dealt a hard situation and, as Newman once said, "deserve a chance to have some fun and raise a little hell!" I'm fortunate to have my health and also fortunate to have been able to spend five great summers at a different summer camp as a boy. I still maintain close friendships developed during those summers spent in New Hampshire so this cause resonates with me
