As most of you know I have a love for running. I have been running for 10 plus years. I enjoy it because it positively effects me physically and mentally. Last year I checked off a major item on my bucket list when I ran and finished the NYC Marathon.
I love running races because it allows me to be around other people that also have a love for this sport. But there is more to running races, there is always a cause behind it which makes it so inspiring and worthwhile.
In March of 2020 I am choosing to run the NYC Half Marathon with Team Happiness is Camping and will be Fundraising for the charity. I heard about this organization on the radio and it just inspired me. Please read below to hear more about Happiness is Camping and I hope you will choose to help me towards my fundraising efforts.
Happiness Is Camping is a free residential summer camp in Hardwick, NJ for children with cancer and their siblings. We have hosted over 20,000 children from more than 25 pediatric oncology hospitals.
We treat children with cancer the same as any other summer camper in the world. Our kids receive chemotherapy in our Health Center, rest, and then they're off to ride on the zip line, swim in the camp pool, or make a cool arts and crafts project.
Help us continue to provide a place where children with cancer can put aside their illness for a summer and do what a kid is supposed to do...have fun!
Thank you so much!
