Thank you for supporting my efforts for Camp Sunshine in for 2021!!
Dear Friends and Family:
Most of you know that I am a volunteer for Camp Sunshine, a camp for children with cancer. Since 1989, I have spent most of my summers, giving back a week at Camp Sunshine as a counselor to 15 to 18 year old boys. After two years of hosting camp virtually because of COVID, this year we’ll be back in person for my 23th year serving as a counselor to 13 to 15 year old boys.
Camp Sunshine gives children with cancer the opportunity to just be kids. I have had a great time since I was a former Camper and know how important this time is to these kids. I started volunteering my time to the programs and activities for other children with cancer. Time sure moves quickly, I can’t even believe it has been that long ago.
Regardless of any affects or disabilities they may have from their illnesses, they can do all of the things that you would expect at camp and more…swimming, horseback riding, climbing a ropes course, zip-lining, boating, fishing, arts and crafts, newspaper, computers, cooking, biking, paddle boarding…and the list goes on and on.
Once again, I am raising money for the 23st Annual Keencheefoonee Road Race - a 2K walk and 5K run for counselors during summer camp to raise money to help to send these children to camp. “Keencheefoonee” is the name of the road where summer camp is located.
Would you consider sponsoring me? My goal is to raise $40,000 in honor of the 40th Year of Camp and the campers who will once again be back at camp in person in 2022! Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Trisha and I are fortunate enough to have four great boys and this is one way that we enjoy giving something back to others. Working with these children at camp gives these children with cancer an opportunity to enjoy normal activities, but also provides them with any special needs that they may require. I hope that all of you will help me in my quest.
Some interesting stats about Camp Sunshine from 2021: More than 161 programs, more than 3,200 participants, more than 1,200 activity and care packages delivered, over 330 “Camp-in-a-Box” packages shipped out and and 100% of parents reported they would encourage other children with cancer and their families to participate in Camp Sunshine programs!
With many thanks,
