Hey Everyone! It's nearly that time for my second Beach to Beacon 10k race in Portland, Maine to raise money for Camp Sunshine!
Camp Sunshine provides retreats combining respite, recreation and support, while enabling hope and promoting joy, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families through the various stages of a child’s illness. One of the best things about Camp Sunshine is that it not only provides a retreat for the sick child, but also to each family member - children, siblings, and parents.
Since its inception, Camp Sunshine has offered comfort, hope, and support to over 43,500 individuals from 48 states and 23 countries. Camp Sunshine is currently the only full-time facility in the nation whose sole purpose is to provide respite for the whole family.
I'm excited about the opportunity to visit camp again this year and to sun this race to raise money for such an amazing cause! My fund-raising goal is $500, which is 1/5 of the cost is takes to send one family to camp. If everyone gives more than that, great! If 50 of my friends and family donate just $10, that will bring me to my goal. Every little bit helps! Thank you everyone!
