BENEFITING: Sunrise Day Camps Association Inc
7The mission of the Sunrise Association (Sunrise) is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide through the creation of Sunrise Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.
As most of you know, I have been volunterring at Sunrise for over 3 years. I care deeply about providing opportunities to bring joy to sick and ailing children and I know all too well the effect that having a sick child can have on an entire family. My parents would have given the world to have an organization like Sunrise around when my sister was battling leukemia when we were kids. As a Mom, I have never felt more determined to bring awareness to this cause but I need your help! I am running the 2017 NYC Marathon to raise money for Sunrise and the wonderful programs they support. You can also come out to cheer on and support my uncle Ricky and me as we tackle our third NYC Marathon together! We ran this race in 2009 and 2010, 2017 is going to be our best year yet. Please consider donating! No amount is too small!
