We are back at it again! This year is going to BIGGER and BETTER! We need your help.
We are doing a head shave at Old Saybrook High School on October 20th! In collaboration with the interact club, I am raising funds for Camp Rising Sun, a summer camp for kids that have suffered from childhood cancer. All of the campers have lost significant time due to needles, infusions, hospital visits and needing to be isolated from friends/peers during their youth. Camp Rising Sun is an amazing summer camp experience at no cost for fighters and survivors where we can feel like a normal kid for a week.
After 11 years of going to this camp, I've decided that it was my turn to give back. The reason I am doing a head shaving fundraiser is because when we are going through cancer treatment and taking chemotherapy, often we lose our hair. By shaving your head I hope to raise awareness for childhood cancer and funds for Camp Rising Sun. So many people have been affected by childhood cancer, and this is a great way to honor them. This years event will be is memory of Marik, who attended last year. Marik was a Camp Rising Sun camper and one of my best friends. After a long fought battle with Osteosarcoma Marik passed away in April 2018.
It costs $1500 to send one child to camp, any donation is appreciated! Thank you for reading my page.
