I will be "Freezin' for a Reason" for Camp Sunshine by jumping into the ocean at Long Branch, New Jersey on Feb. 8th, 2014. Crazy? Yes. Check out my last 'traning' session on the shore of the beach at Long Branch.
I have spent most of my working life in the non-profit sector developing and implementing programs and services for people living with cancer. One of the most meaningful experiences of my career began when I met A.J.'s Mom, Nancy Cincotta and learned about Camp Sunshine; a retreat for families with children that have life threatening illnesses.
There are no words powerful enough to describe how moved I was when I visited Camp Sunshine (on beautiful Sebago Lake in the great state of Maine) and witnessed how the staff and volunteers create a welcome, loving, informative, fun and hopeful experience for the entire family.
Please support my crazy dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean in February. Any chill I feel will be warmed instantly by thoughts of the children and families that benefit from the magic of Camp Sunshine.
