Camp Sunshine is pleased to announce the 2013 Colin’s Crew Polar Dip. We believe that together we can send many more children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to our one-of-a-kind retreat in Casco, Maine.
With the strength of an event such as Colin’s Crew Polar Dip and the resources of Camp Sunshine, it is our goal to raise in excess of $20,000 in 2013. That is enough to send 10 Connecticut families to Camp Sunshine.
Any plunger raising $100, you will receive a highly-coveted, commemorative, long-sleeve “I DID IT” event shirt!
For those individuals not quite ready to take the full plunge, we do offer the "chicken dip"!
Who is Colin’s Crew?
Colin’s Crew was originally formed to provide financial and emotional support to the Westbrook family of Wallingford, CT. Colin Westbrook, son of Heather and Michael, was your typical two-year-old when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, (ALL) back in October 2009, just days after his second birthday.
Colin, along with his mom and dad, and little sister Maddison, attended Camp Sunshine for a week-long vacation in July 2010. “Because of Camp Sunshine, our family was able to take a family vacation like no other. The volunteer staff was wonderful and being able to share stories and bond with other families in the same situation was truly amazing” said Michael Westbrook.
As Colin Continues to do well, “Colin’s Crew” is now organizing a fundraising event with Camp Sunshine to help other families in the same situation as the Westbrook’s.
For 2013, the Colin’s Crew Polar Dip is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Camp Sunshine. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our participants, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference.
We've partnered with CrowdRise to encourage the entire community to unite and fundraise for Camp Sunshine. Just imagine the impact the entire community can have when harnessed to give back in a fun and compelling way!
