I am NOT a big Fundraiser and I know there are so many fantastic causes out there, but this one is near and dear to my heart. In three short weeks, I'll be biking 50 miles from this awesome place called Hole in the Wall camp in Ashford CT down to Mystic. It's an amazing place, like any other fun camp, but staffed with medical care for 24 hours, huge wheelchair accessible tree house, medically appropriate 90 degree wheelchair accessible pool...a place where sick kids can go for one week and feel normal-all free of charge to families effected.
The money that we raise is for a program called the Hospital Outreach Program (HOP), that brings this camp to sick kids to hospitals throughout New England. In 2014, HOP expanded to include 39 sites, with 28 specialists making 31,049 child hospital visits. Amazing!
Thank you in advance!
