BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT DATE: Mar 16, 2014
I was inspired by Team Hole in the Wall to run the 2014 New York City Half Marathon! The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing "A different kind of healing" to seriously ill children and their families, free of charge. It's a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood where every kid can "raise a little hell." This is a great cause that reminds all of us that we need to appreciate and maximize every day we have!
Please help in reaching my fundraising goal, the team appreciates your help! Any amount you can contribute is appreciated and 100% will go directly to the Camp.
I look forward to keeping you posted, Thanks! Tom
“I wish I could recall with clarity the impulse that compelled me to help bring this camp into being. I’d be pleased if I could announce a motive of lofty purpose. I’ve been accused of compassion, of altruism, of devotion to Christian, Hebrew, and Muslim ethic, but however desperate I am to claim ownership of a high ideal, I cannot. I wanted, I think, to acknowledge Luck; the chance of it, the benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others, made especially savage for children because they may not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it.” – Paul Newman
