On April 4th and 5th, Painted Turtle staff and volunteers will be participating in the SoCal Ragnar race to raise awareness and funds for The Painted Turtle Camp. As a 12-person team we will run the 195.2 miles in a timed race from Los Angeles to San Diego! We know it’s crazy, but we will do just about anything to support the campers! Please support us!
The Painted Turtle is where children with serious medical conditions celebrate just being kids! Through innovative, camp-based programs that offer a great big dose of fun and support, children with more than 30 medical conditions visit The Painted Turtle each year, reclaiming the joys of childhood. The Painted Turtle is a member of Paul Newman’s renowned SeriousFun Camps. Campers and families attend free of charge. The Painted Turtle has no billing department.
Our fund-raising goal is to raise $5,000. Your generosity and enthusiasm will not only help us reach our goal, but it will also make a positive difference in the lives of the campers. Read what one of our campers has to say about her experience at The Painted Turtle.
“The Painted Turtle is special to me because it lets me break free and just be a kid for once. It gives me mental strength and allows me to do physical things that I normally don’t get to do… So, if you are like me and need a place to make you smile then The Painted Turtle is for you.”
Thank you in advance for your support!
