BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
ORGANIZER: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
As a member of Team Hole in the Wall, I am using my participation in the Boston Marathon to support the mission and programs of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. Please help me reach (or even exceed!) my goal. With your generosity, we can all share in the joy of knowing that we are helping to provide a different kind of healing to children and families battling serious illness.
I have had the incredible opportunity to work at camp for the past 3 years. I have spent 2 summers as a full summer staff member and the past 8 months as camp's full time Program Associate. I have seen firsthand the life changing magic camp brings to campers and their families. Camp gives these sick kids a chance to kick back and "raise a little hell." It has been such a privilege to watch campers transform throughout their session from quiet and reserved to excited and confident. The friendships and memories made at camp lift our camper’s spirits and give them the strength to take on life outside of camp's gates.
It's not just campers who benefit from camp. At one of our Fall Family Weekends this year a Mom stood up and stated "Every camp function gives my whole family a chance to fall in love with each other again." It is so important to remember that illness not only affects the child but the entire family, and it is the goal of The Hole in the Wall Gang to make sure the whole family is loved.
The best part about camp is that it comes at absolutly no cost to the families! All of this saftey, respect, and love is made possible by donors like you. Please join me in supporting The Hole in the Wall Gang, and let's send some amazing kids to camp!
