On May 19th, We will be participating and competing in the 2nd Annual Day of Champions event in Westport, CT to raise money for Experience Camps. It's an exciting morning filled with fun competition in a color war style event to raise money for this amazing and very worthwhile cause.
Experience Camps are free, one-week overnight camps for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. Whether childhood grief directly resonates with you or has just touched the outer perimeter of your life, it's hard to deny the importance of a place where kids can be with other kids who "get it" after losing someone critically important in their life. Experience Camps is that place.
Experience Camps are where kids can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, or forget the grief that weighs them down. It's a place where they can feel "normal", because everyone there has been through something similar and understands what it's like to lose someone important to them. It's a home away from home. And just about everyone will tell you..."It's the best week of the year".
We hope you will support our team to raise funds to send many children to these very special camps.
With many thanks,
Team Shiny Happy People
