Please help me in raising funds for this truly incredible organization, Camp Rising Sun! Camp Rising Sun provides a weeklong sleepaway camp experience for kids who haved faced a diagnosis of cancer. It is fully staffed with medical professionals and volunteers who enable these kids to enjoy a week away from frequent doctors visits and cancer treatments, and to spend time just being kids.
My son, Zach, has attended this camp for the past three summers, as he continues his fight against leukemia. It is a place like no other, providing a chance for kids to meet other kids facing similar challenges, and treatments. Many new friendships are formed, and the volunteer counselors and medical staff, many of whom are survivors of childhood cancer themselves, are a true inspiration that cannot be matched. This is a week that Zach looks forward to all year long!
Camp Rising Sun is thrilled to once again be an Official Charity with the Eversource Hartford Marathon. Funds raised will help ensure that Camp Rising Sun continues to provide this unparalleled experience for children with cancer. Because until there's a cure, there's Camp!
