Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Camp Kesem! I am so excited to represent this wonderful organization as I run the Half Marathon at the Ascension Seton Austin Marathon. Camp Kesem is a student-run organization that supports children impacted by a parent’s cancer this summer. There are about 5 million children in the United States who have been affected by a parent’s cancer, and this will be my 3rd year as a Camp Kesem counselor.
Camp Kesem is a nationwide community supporting children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. Each year, Camp Kesem chapters across the country bring children together who have faced similar hardships, and help them build a sense of belonging with their like minded peers. Camp Kesem at Austin is honored to be recognized and take part in a tradition that is true to the spirit and character of Austin. As an AGM charity, we hope to raise $15,000 in order to send children affected by a parent’s cancer to camp for free. Through our partnership with High Five Events, we aim to bring the magic of Camp Kesem to more families, as well as continue the fight against cancer!
