THE STORY:

2013 More/Fitness Half-Marathon - Money Raised for Camp Hole in the Wall - $1,000

This year, I plan on beating that goal and running...

Children + Camp + Serious Illness + Paul Newman = A chance to be an average kid

The Cause:
In 1988, Paul Newman opened The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut so that children coping with serious illnesses could have a special hideout where they could simply be kids. The Camp, which served 288 campers its first year, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012-13 with 20,000 children and family members now experiencing “a different kind of healing” annually. Each year, 2,500 are served onsite and 19,000 visits by the Hospital Outreach Program bring the fun and friendship of Camp into more than 20 sites throughout the Northeast – all free of charge. 

My personal investment in this charity:
I loved camp growing up. I owe a lot of who I am to the friendships, growth and fun of camp. Paul founded the camp 'with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp.' So, yes, I believe in camp's power to take a shitty disease ridden environment and create a unique healing experience to kids and their families, even it's just for a moment.

Really most importantly, it's the donations that matter, not me doing the running, Money is what allows these kids to attend camp. Money is behind the good cause, not the 13.6 miles of pounded pavement.  So I have a motto: do what you can, with what you have.  So I appeal to you to donate, if you feel moved to join this casue, with what you can, however you can.

I thank you a million times over.
